LSE, The Atlantic Philanthropies to partner in 20-year fellowship
An ambitious programme, designed to build a global community of leaders dedicated to changing policy, practice and public dialogue around inequalities, has been announced by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), The Atlantic Philanthropies and the University of Cape Town.
The GSDPP was established to develop strategic abilities across Africa to enable government, non-profits and the private sector to combat inequality. The GSDPP is part of UCT’s Poverty and Inequality Initiative, which is a collaborating partner in the Atlantic Fellows programme with the London School of Economics’ International Inequalities Institute.
“Despite the strengthening of democracy in Africa, inequality is a growing challenge, especially in the many African countries that depend on natural resource exports,” said Prof Hirsch.
