International Conference: Poverty  and  Inclusive  Development,  New  approaches  and  challenges

The Laboratoire d’Economie Appliquée au Développement (LEAD) as member of the GDRI-IED organizes a conference on “Poverty and Inclusive development: New  approaches  and  challenges”. The conference will be held at the University of Toulon, Faculté des Sciences Economiques et de Gestion, on the 26th and 27th April 2016.

The aim of the conference is to investigate the linkages and interactions between poverty and the multiple facets of development. It will also provide the opportunity to discuss the state of the art of the ongoing research on poverty and development and to exchange information on regional experiences of poverty reduction and on development strategies.

Particular emphasis will be put on the South Mediterranean countries where social uprisings brought into focus economic challenges, social inequalities, territorial disparities and the shortcomings of their development model.
