2009 Poverty & Social Protection Conference

This conference will focus on issues of poverty and its eradication, social inequality, race relations and policy management and mismanagement with an international perspective. As poverty continues to be an ongoing, often-inhumane problem, this conference aims to provide a comparative perspective in analyzing past/current trends and conditions to better understand the never-ending downward spiral many individuals and families find themselves in.

The 2009 Poverty and Social Protection Conference (P.S.P) will address questions regarding the role and importance of equal distribution of resources and social inclusion. The potential roles and impacts less-developed countries have on politics, business, education and the public sector. In addition, major social and economic trends and their potential for poverty reduction.

The 2009 P.S.P Conference will focus on how poverty is measured, the effects of welfare states, the major causes of poverty including environmental and economic factors such as the World Bank as well as governance, demographics and social factors. P.S.P Conference 2009 will also address the many effects of poverty, including social isolation, human trafficking, displacement, suicide and homelessness. Poverty reduction strategies, economic growth, free market, fair trade, social aid and the unavoidable effects of globalization.

As a P.S.P conference participant you will have the opportunity to learn and discuss these and many additional issues of importance in creating strategies for the eradication of poverty, particularly amongst underdeveloped countries and within disadvantaged groups.

Conference will welcome scholars, NGO representatives, corporate and Governmental representatives gathered with a common goal- that of poverty reduction and to increase social responsibility.
