INET Young Scholars Initiative event: Developing Equality? with Jonathan Wolff and Craig Holmes

The Young Scholars Initiative Economic Development and Inequality Working Groups will be hosting a panel discussion on 'Developing Equality?' with Professor Jonathan Wolff (Blavatnik School) and Dr. Craig Holmes (Pembroke College, INET).

Registration at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/developing-equality-with-jonathan-wolff-and-craig-holmes-tickets-31359239329 The event is open to all. Students will be given priority during the question round. 

The aim of the INET Young Scholars Initiative is to give young scholars around the world an opportunity to reflect on important issues related to economics through a multidisciplinary lens. Through this initiative we want to help students develop a better understanding and reflect on the bigger picture questions. This talk offers two different perspectives on inequality (philosophical and economic).

The first panelist is, Professor Jonathan Wolff, Chair of Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government. As a well-known political philosophy, he will share his thoughts on the concept of social equality from a philosophical point of view. He will be discussing What it means to be equal and unequal? and its implications for public policy in the UK.

The second panelist is Craig Holmes, a labour economist, teaching fellow in Economics at Pembroke College and Senior Research Fellow on INET's Employment, Equity and Growth Programme. He will be discussing Economic In(equality) -how wage differences are determined by technology, organisations, and education and training.

The event welcomes all students and scholars
