Inequalities is a common, if often unstated, theme in the news. How the causes and consequences of inequalities are presented matters, so how do we change the current narratives?

Jee Kim is leading the Narratives Initiative as part of the global Atlantic Fellows programme.

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.

Katy Wright (@KatyWright) is Head of Global External Affairs at Oxfam.

Beverley Skeggs (@bevskeggs) is the incoming Director of the Atlantic Fellows Programme at the III, starting in September 2017, she is currently Professor of Sociology, at Goldsmiths, University of London where she has worked since 2004.

If you are interesed in attending this public event, you may be interested in attending the International Inequalities Institute annual conference entitled Challenging Inequalities: developing a global response taking place at 9:30am to 5:30pm on Wednesday 14 June 2017.
