Live Event: Club de Madrid and Brookings Institute join forces to Promote Shared Societies

Live Event: Club de Madrid and Brookings Institute join forces to Promote Shared Societies

As the Millennium Development Goals’ expiration date of 2015 approaches, groups around the world have proposed various frameworks and priorities as the basis for the future global development agenda. The Club de Madrid has advanced a “shared societies” perspective for the post-2015 development agenda, which argues that the inclusion of all segments of society, especially marginalized identity groups should serve as a foundation for the new global development goals.

On February 7, the Global Economy and Development program at Brookings will convene a high-level panel to discuss how social inclusion should fit into the post-2015 development agenda. Panelists will include Club of Madrid members Kim Campbell, former prime minister of Canada; Wim Kok, former prime minister of the Netherlands; and Cassam Uteem, former president of Mauritius. They will be joined by Santiago Levy, vice president for Sectors and Knowledge at the Inter-American Development Bank, and John Podesta, a former member of the High-level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Brookings Senior Fellow Homi Kharas will moderate the discussion.

After the program, the panelists will take audience questions. This event will be live webcast. .Register here to watch the event via live webcast and join the conversation on Twitter at #SharedSocieties
