Issues in Global Human Inequality
with Dr. Haroon Akram-Lodhi
We live in a complex world of unparallelled affluence and immense deprivation. Yet cutting across this complexity, there are a set of objectives that form key areas of focus for the contemporary policy agenda of states engaged in facilitating improvements in human development - climate change; population structures; conflict and complex emergencies; gender and development; the role of employment in livelihoods; and social protection. Issues in global human inequality explores these key policy debates, connecting the global to the local and portraying our individual connection to social change and development both in Canada and beyond.
