Deputy Director Meghan Campbell Contributes to Philanthropy Impact Magazine
admin 8th June 2015

The latest edition of Philanthropy Impact Magazine explores the challenges posed by inequality and poverty.

This issue explores the challenges of poverty and inequality from an inter-disciplinary perspective: corporate social responsibility, economics, the role of philanthropy, development policies and international human rights.

Deputy Director, Meghan Campbell argues that for the promise of the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals to be realised it is necessary to appreciate how poverty tracks onto other identity and status based characteristics such as race, gender and age. Development policies and human rights solutions need to account for the intersection between poverty and status inequalities. States and donors need to ensure that social and economic benefits not only address poverty but also further substantive equality. Attention to this relationship will ensure that the Sustainable Development Goals and human rights are realised for all people.
