Inequality and Equity
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.
