Conference Partners: Nelson Mandela School of Public Governance, International Inequalities Institute and Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity


The Nelson Mandela School of Public Governance at the University of Cape Town is delighted to host the 2018 Annual Conference for the International Inequalities Institute. The Institute is based at the London School of Economics and Political Science, one of the world's leading institutions for the social sciences, itself established to further the aim of bettering society, focusing on research into issues of poverty, inequality and related issues. This event brings the focus of the Institute to Africa, with Africans leading and directing the discussion.


The Nelson Mandela School of Public Governance partners with the III on a number of research projects, as well as in the regular management of the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity (AFSEE) programme.


Atlantic Fellows are a global community of leaders –activists, artists, journalists, health professionals, entrepreneurs, researchers, teachers, lawyers, and others –working together across disciplines and borders to advance equity, justice and human dignity.


Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity works to identify, prepare and connect cohorts of diverse, multidisciplinary and action-oriented leaders seeking comprehensive solutions to the structural and historic impediments that underpin inequalities globally. Over the next twenty years the programme will support over 600 Fellows in developing innovative understandings of inequalities, and work toward finding real-world solutions.


As part of the conference, the AFSEE participants will be participating in the conference and brining their knowledge and expertise to the discussion as we strive to find solutions to inequality and youth underemployment in Africa.
