Venue: Brunei Gallery Room: Lecture Theatre

Type of Event: Inaugural Lecture

Chair: Professor John Weeks

Professor Paul Webley, Director and Principal of SOAS, will preside.

In his inaugural lecture Terry McKinley will discuss the relationship between growth and equality which has been the source of a long-standing debate in development, deriving, in part, from differences in the underlying values and weights attached to each of the two objectives. This inaugural lecture draws on a large body of recent policy-oriented research in order to examine the theoretical, normative nd practical relationship between growth, inequality and poverty.

The event will be followed by a reception.
