The Southern Centre for Inequality Studies hosts a seminar with Professor Ravi Kanbur, on inequality, citizenship, migration and opportunity.

Kanbur is the T.H. Lee Professor of World Affairs, International Professor of Applied Economics and Management, and Professor of Economics, Cornell University. The seminar will cover three interconnected issues.

The first is the role of development finance institutions, such as the World Bank for middle income countries - is there still a place for international financial aid? Secondly, what role does migration play in development for middle income countries, and should the borders of rich countries be more open to economic migrants than they currently are?

Finally, how does the discussion around the equality of opportunity within developing countries translate to equality of opportunity in a global perspective?
