Development inequalities can impact a socially-just world in which all people, including future generations, are able to enjoy a decent life. The pandemic has highlighted the urgency to address the development inequalities, emphasising the significance of global interconnectedness and lesson-learning across north-south borders.
Academics at Alliance Manchester Business School understand that the research on development inequalities is delivered in an effective and socially responsible manner. Here are some of the projects that our academics have been working on:
1. Members of the Work and Equalities Institute at Alliance Manchester Business School wrote a series of thought-provoking articles on the impact of the pandemic in their specific fields of research highlighting the continued inequalities across the global workplace.
2. A new report on African infrastructure was published by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) which cites a book co-edited by academics from Alliance MBS.
3. A major four-year project looking at labour markets in different cities across the world has been secured by the Work and Equalities Institute. It is headed up by Dr Mathew Johnson who has been awarded a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship to evaluate different ways of promoting decent working conditions through city institutions and networks.
