Taking on Inequalities

Why now and where to start

The University of Manchester's Global Development Institute brought together The Guardian, World Bank and Oxfam for a panel discussion to take questions and share academic research, policy and campaigning perspectives on how and where we start to tackle Global Inequalities - one of the University's five research beacons.

The discussion was chaired by Anna Leach, Deputy Editor of The Guardian's Global Development Professionals Network and an alumna of The University of Manchester.
