Globalization and Inequality

Session 6 - Thursday, June 22 - 10:45 AM to 12:05 PM

Introductory Course

This lecture will examine the implications of globalisation and of the move away from protectionism since 1980. It will have a specific focus on the implications for inequality. Inequality at the global level, within individual developed countries and in poor countries will be discussed. This has been the subject of much debate, not only in government but in supranational bodies. It is important that such debate is based on facts.
