Poverty: Pathways, Challenges and Transitions

Poverty: Pathways, Challenges and Transitions

Description

This one-day virtual conference will send a strong message that - as the world emerges from the pandemic and deals with rising fuel bills and inflation - policymakers will have to focus on creating more opportunities; more sustainable jobs and pathways and managing transitions in the context of global and local challenges, including climate change, gender inequality, and extreme poverty. This is set against a backdrop of significant punitive socio-economic measures against under-represented social groups.

With a special focus on the “post pandemic era,” the conference aims to feature a wide range of the latest research on the impact of poverty on the pathways and transitions of working-class people, including the differential impacts of rising fuel bills, inflation and COVID-19 on workers, migration, race, disability and remittances, and gender gaps in the labour market.

The conference brings together working-class academics, practitioners, and researchers from across a range of educational and public sector settings. It is open to people identifying as working-class/being of working-class heritage and who are interested in themes of health and social care, sociology, criminology, psychology, community development, public health. We welcome anyone with lived experience of conference themes and wants to get more informed on issues related to social class and poverty.

To help make things inclusive, we will be holding our conference online on Wed. November 23rd, 2022, between 1pm to 5pm UK time. This will be a meeting of minds from across educational communities, fields, and domains.
