In times of austerity, can we afford to tackle global and intergenerational inequality?

Rosamund Urwin (Columnist for London Evening Standard) and Ben Phillips (Director of Policy, Research, Advocacy and Campaigns at ActionAid) will share their views on how contemporary capitalism intersects with global and intergenerational inequalities. In what way does capitalism drive inequalities? And what are the opportunities for change?

Drawing on various examples, Rosamund will pay particular attention to intergenerational inequalities. Ben will focus on inequalities between developed and developing worlds, and how these global inequalities seem to increase with each economic downturn and financial crisis.
