Taking on Inequalities: An event with the World Bank, Oxfam and the Guardian

The University of Manchester brought together the Guardian, World Bank and Oxfam for a panel discussion entitled ‘Taking on Inequalities: Why now and where to start?’ in May 2017.

The panel took questions and shared academic research, policy and campaigning perspectives on how and where to start as we tackle global inequalities.

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

The panel featured:

  • Carolina Sanchez, Senior Director, The Poverty and Equity Global Practice at the World Bank
  • Dr Rory Horner, Researcher, Global Development Institute (GDI), The University of Manchester
  • Rebecca Gowland, Head of UK Campaigns, Oxfam

The Global Development Institute (GDI) is the largest dedicated to development research and teaching in Europe and is also home to the Rory and Elizabeth Brooks Doctoral College. The results of the most recent Research Excellence Framework ranked GDI second for impact ranking in development studies in the UK, with many of our researchers deemed to be 'world-leading'.
