Reducing global inequality: how can we achieve a fairer world?

This event took place on on Tuesday 29 Nov 2016 at The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH and was part of the British Academy Debates on Inequalities.

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals consist of 17 objectives which aim to transform the world for the better by 2030. Closely interlinked, these goals pledge to tackle a range of issues-from reducing inequality within and among countries to achieving gender equality. How do nations realise this vision of a shared future with equality and opportunities for all? We ask an expert panel to discuss their priorities and hopes for the years ahead.
