CDPR Event: Inequality in Pakistan
CDPR's Lahore Policy Exchange, titled "Inequality in Pakistan", will be held at its office in Lahore this Friday on March 10th. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to attend.
Though Pakistan is growing, access to goods, services and opportunities varies widely by income level, education and identity. This is because prevailing structures and institutions perpetuate inequality and prevent those with the lowest access from upward mobility.
How severe is the problem, and how can Pakistan bridge the gaps moving forward?
To address this topic, the event will feature two panelists:
Khalil Hamdani, Visiting Professor at the Lahore School of Economics’ Graduate Institute of Development Studies and former senior UN official, will discuss why economic growth need to be inclusive.
Faisal Bari, Senior Research Fellow and Director of the Institute of Development and Economic Alternatives (IDEAS), will discuss the problem of education and inequality.
The conversation will be moderated by Ijaz Nabi, Chairman of the Board at CDPR.
Tea and coffee will be served after the discussion. We look forward to your attendance.
