What can insights from seven decades of research in Palanpur tell us about economic development, inequality and prospects for India?

This event is the Eva Colorni Memorial Lecture.

Nicholas Stern (@lordstern1) is IG Patel Professor of Economics and Government at LSE, Director of the LSE India Observatory and President of the British Academy.

Amartya Sen is Thomas W Lamont University Professor and Professor of Economics and Philosophy at Harvard University. He is the recipient of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Economics and is an LSE Honorary Fellow.

Naila Kabeer (@N_Kabeer) is Professor of Gender and Development at the Gender Institute and at the Department of International Development at LSE.  Her research interests include gender, poverty, social exclusion, labour markets and livelihoods, social protection and citizenship and much of her research is focused on South and South East Asia. 

LSE’s Gender Institute (@LSEGenderTweet) is the largest gender studies centre in Europe. With a global perspective, the Gender Institute’s research and teaching intersects with other categories of analysis such as race, ethnicity, class and sexuality; because gender relations work in all spheres of life, interdisciplinarity is key to our approach.   

The International Inequalities Institute at LSE (@LSEInequalities) brings together experts from many LSE departments and centres to lead critical and cutting edge research to understand why inequalities are escalating in numerous arenas across the world, and to develop critical tools to address these challenges.
