What Needs to Be Done to End Global Poverty
Mark Goldring, CEO of Oxfam
The Great Hall, Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol
In January 2017, Oxfam reported the ‘obscene’ fact that just eight men own the same wealth as the poorest half of the world, 3.6 billion people. The ever-increasing concentration of wealth in the hands of a diminishing few has significant social, economic, and political costs for the global population. While overcoming the associated inequalities will present many challenges, Oxfam is, nevertheless, committed to building a global economy that benefits everyone. In this guest lecture, hosted by the University of Bristol Law School, Mark Goldring, CEO of Oxfam, will challenge the next generation of lawyers, top executives, opinion formers and others, to consider how shifts in legal, political, and economic frameworks across the globe can contribute to the creation of a more equitable and sustainable human economy that benefits more than the privileged few.
