Delegates to tackle issues of poverty and inequality

03 September 2012

From 3 to 7 September UCT will host Strategies to Overcome Poverty and Inequality: Towards Carnegie III, a conference that will look for effective ways to reduce inequality and poverty in its many forms. The conference will follow on from two historic Carnegie inquiries that focused on highlighting and addressing poverty and inequality in South Africa. The 2012 conference will focus on understanding the experiences and causes of inequality, and particularly on considering practical strategies - policies and actions - that are aimed at significantly reducing inequality and poverty in both the short and long term. The conference, led by UCT Emeritus Professor in Economics Francis Wilson, will be the beginning of a three-year process.
