Whose social justice is it anyway?

6:30pm, Monday 6 July 2015, Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 4QH

Part of the Justice, Money and Power series at the City of London Festival 2015.

2015 marks the deadline of the Millennium Development Goals. 25 years on from the publication of the UN’s first Human Development Report, attitudes towards social justice have changed profoundly. Where once it was simply hoped that economic growth could deliver justice for the world’s poor, increasingly development and aid focuses on enhancing capability and reducing inequality. Would the developing world benefit from more trade than aid, and let themselves decide how best to deliver social justice?
