Lecture Theatre A, University Place

The University of Manchester's Global Development Institute is bringing together The Guardian, World Bank and Oxfam for a panel discussion to take your questions and share academic research, policy and campaigning perspectives on how and where we start to address global inequalities - one of the University's five research beacons.

The discussion will be chaired by Anna Leach, Deputy Editor of The Guardian's Global Development Professionals Network and an alumna of The University of Manchester.

The panel will feature:

  • Carolina Sanchez - Senior Director of the Poverty and Equity Global Practice (GP) at World Bank
  • Dr Rory Horner - Researcher, Global Development Institute (GDI), The University of Manchester
  • Rebecca Gowland - Head of Campaigning, Oxfam UK

Join us in the audience and have your say on how we can move the conversation beyond agreeing that inequalities are an issue and instead start start talking about why we must take action now, where we can start and how research, campaigning, and policy can play a part.

Have your say in the conversation live online with questions in advance and on the night with the hashtag #TOI17
