The Yale MacMillan Center’s Global Justice Program and Global Financial Integrity proudly present The Structural Roots of Global Poverty: Theory Meets Practice. This three-day conference, held at Yale University on February 14th, 15th, and 16th, will bring together academic, advocacy, and policy communities to address the structural roots of global poverty relating to illicit financial flows and tax policy, the post-2015 development agenda, climate change, and global health.
The conference will commence on the morning of Thursday, February 14th with a day-long exploration of the relationship between tax policy, illicit financial flows, and global poverty. Friday, February 15th will feature discussion of priorities for development after 2015, when the Millennium Development Goals expire. Speakers will be encouraged to focus on the themes of governance and global institutional reform, inclusive participatory consultation, and merging the environmental sustainability and poverty alleviation agendas. Saturday, February 16th will be broken into two sessions, one focusing on climate change and global poverty, and the other on international cooperation for innovation in global health. The conference will conclude Saturday evening.
A finalized conference schedule, including conference location, will be available shortly.
