Poverty, Human Rights & Inequality: How to Address the Post-Pandemic Poverty Crisis
Following the Covid-19 pandemic, the world now face a crisis of poverty that has been severely aggravated over the past 15 months. Years of work eradicating extreme poverty has been brushed away on all continents.
Join us for the second webinar in a three-part series. This event will focus on the intersection between poverty, human rights, and inquality.
- How does inequality extend beyond economics to, for example, inhibit democratic participation and reinforce social exclusion?
- How has the COVID-19 pandemic interacted with and aggravated these aspects of inequality?
- Is inequality, whether economic or social, a human rights violation, and what is the role of international institutions and private entities in addressing the range of inequalities?
The panel will address these questions and other aspects of the post-pandemic challenge drawing on their rich knowledge and insights as well as their contributions to the newly published book, Research Handbook on Human Rights and Poverty, edited by Martha Davis, Morten Kjaerum and Amanda Lyons.
