Tel Aviv University - Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, FREE
The discourse on poverty and inequality is numerous and has many disagreements. Which measures are most appropriate for measuring poverty and inequality? What are the trends that characterize these in Israel and around the world? What are the tools available to the state to deal with these two phenomena, and which ones are most effective? These questions are entitled to a rejuvenation in light of the changes that have characterized the world around us in recent decades.
In this event, we convened the leading minds in the field to discuss the question of what are the political tools for coping with poverty and inequality in view of the successes and failures of the past, and in view of the many changes we are witnessing in human society and the tools at its disposal?
The event is free and subject to availability.
