Academics Stand Against Poverty: One Year Anniversary Conference
Global Poverty: What Do We Know? Where Do We Go From Here?
April 12-13, 2012
Speakers: Philip Alston, Hugh Evans, Nicole Hassoun, Branko Milanovic, Thomas Pogge, Gustav Ranis, and Paul Slovic
We invite researchers, teachers and students with an interest in global poverty alleviation efforts to take part in the one year anniversary conference of Academics Stand Against Poverty (ASAP).
The first day of the conference will be dedicated to a symposium about the future of global poverty alleviation after the expiration of the Millennium Development Goals in 2015 and to a discussion of current ASAP efforts and future directions for the organization. The second day will be dedicated to a workshop on how to effectively motivate individuals to act on their moral obligations to alleviate global poverty.
ASAP is an international network helping scholars, teachers and students enhance their impact on global poverty. It does so by promoting collaboration amongst poverty-focused academics, by helping them reach out to broader audiences on issues of poverty, and by helping them turn their expertise into impact through specific intervention projects.
