Poverty and Social Protection Conference 2013

Tomorrow People Organisation

Tomorrow People Organisation dedicated to promoting leadership values, education and social responsibility. Its activities include academic conferences, study abroad programmes and volunteering programmes in four different continents.

Tomorrow People Organisation is hosting a three-day conference on Poverty and Social Protection from 9-11 March 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand.

This conference will focus on issues of poverty and its eradication, social inequality, race relations and policy management and mismanagement with an international perspective. As poverty continues to be an ongoing, often-inhumane problem, this conference aims to provide a comparative perspective in analysing past/current trends and conditions to better understand the never-ending downward spiral many individuals and families find themselves in.

The 2013 Poverty and Social Protection Conference (P.S.P) will address questions regarding the role and importance of equal distribution of resources and social inclusion. The potential roles and impacts less-developed countries have on politics, business, education and the public sector. In addition, major social and economic trends and their potential for poverty reduction.

The 2013 conference will focus on how poverty is measured, the effects of welfare states, the major causes of poverty including environmental and economic factors such as the World Bank as well as governance, demographics and social factors. The 2011 conference will also address the many effects of poverty, rural development, including social isolation, human trafficking, displacement, suicide and homelessness. Poverty reduction strategies, economic growth, free market, fair trade, social aid and the unavoidable effects of globalisation.

As a conference participant you will have the opportunity to learn and discuss these and many additional issues of importance in creating strategies for the eradication of poverty, particularly amongst underdeveloped countries and within disadvantaged groups.

The 2013 conference will welcome scholars, representatives from non-governmental organisations, corporate and governmental representatives gathered with a common goal - that of poverty reduction and to increase social responsibility. Fostering partnerships and international cooperation are integral steps towards notable change.

Key objectives:

  • Identify main players as well as affected groups and sub-groups;
  • To better understand the role of civil society in poverty eradication;
  • To better understand the governmental role in poverty eradication;
  • Analyse and develop specific policies and targeted groups; and
  • Build a knowledgeable global network committed to change.
