As the host institution of Task Force 5, SMERU is responsible for leading the selection of policy brief proposals while ensuring the alignment of the briefs with the G20 and T20 agenda.
The primary aim of this parallel session is to inform core leaders within the G20 of the importance of redefining our knowledge regarding inequality, human capital, and well-being issues in order to fully capture how the pandemic has affected our lives. This dialogue will highlight research and policy work on inequality, human capital, and well-being presented by researchers and scientists based in the G20 nations.
This collaboration event between T20 Task Force 5 in collaboration with the Faculty of Economics and Business Universitas Indonesia and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) aims to bring together experts and academics in the field of multidimensional poverty, inequality and wellbeing, to find solutions to the challenges faced by G20 nations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
