Inequality and Equity

Inequality and Equity explored on Special Focus Day

Our first Special Focus Day of the year looked at inequality in its various forms. Students and staff put together a diverse program to tackle the issue and identify the roles of each one of us. From education in Latin America, gentrification in Berlin, gender-based affirmative action, language inequality in Africa, the future of inequality or whether Bitcoin/Blockchain play a role in economic (re)distribution – students were invited to attend two seminars / workshops, including a lecture in the morning and in the afternoon. A big thank you to our external guests, and the team from Berlin offering an all-day workshop exploring inequality through theater of the oppressed and anti-discriminatory tools.
