The Global Equity Initiative "seeks to advance the understanding and tackle the challenges of equitable global development. Global inequity - both among people and nations – is among the greatest challenges of our times. Severe disparities exist not only in wealth, but in health, education, economic opportunity, and access to new technologies. Less apparent but also troubling are inequities in human security, access to power, and democratic freedoms. Despite the urgency and importance, our understanding of the forces and consequences of severe inequity is critically limited.

"Even less clear is the path to a fairer and more just world. The Initiative brings together scholars, policy-makers and practitioners from around the world to address these challenges. In the conduct of its work, the Initiative also supports the next generation of scholars and researchers, young leaders who will bring a passionate and professional commitment to addressing poverty and inequality."
