The Consortium for Development Policy Research is holding a session of Lahore Policy Exchange on ‘Understanding the Relationship between Income Inequality and Minority Groups’. The session is being held on Friday, 3rd May from 2:30pm to 4:00pm at 19A FCC Scheme Maratab Ali Road, Gulberg IV, Lahore.

The lack of human rights protection makes Pakistan one of the worst countries for religious and ethnic minority groups. These groups are not only marginalized politically, but by extension, also economically. This is because their access to public goods and state services is significantly curtailed underpinned by unequal educational and employment opportunities.

In order to address the widespread institutional discrimination based on religion and ethnicity, the following speakers have been invited:

Dr. Hadia Majid (Assistant Professor of Economics, LUMS) – will present her research on the role of ethnicity in access to public goods.

Mr. Suneel Malik (Manger Programs, Center for Social Justice) – will discuss inclusive opportunities of minority groups in Pakistan.

Dr. Amjad Saqib (Founder Akhuwat and Development Practitioner) – will discuss how providing microfinance loans to low-income and marginalized groups is helping integrate citizens into the economy.

Dr. Faisal Bari (CEO & Senior Research Fellow, IDEAS, Professor of Economics, LUMS & CDPR Board Member) – will moderate the session.

We look forward to your attendance.

RSVP at admin@cdpr.org.pk by Thursday 2nd May to attend.
