Development & Inequality

Pervasive inequality impacts individuals and communities worldwide. Where historic development practices have fallen short of lasting change, local responses offer innovative solutions to build more sustainable futures. Our programs explore these efforts to balance ecological sustainability, economic opportunity, and gender equity alongside the complexities of growth-centric development. Students become deeply aware of what it means to confront inequality as they witness firsthand the work of people engaged in creating more just and fair societies.
