INCLUDE 2021 Conference report Building forward more inclusively-cover

We are proud to share the newly released conference report, from INCLUDE’s online event ‘Building forward more inclusively’ that took place between 8 to 16 June. In line with its objective, the 2021 INCLUDE conference stimulated a number of productive exchanges between over 50 expert speakers, session chairs and moderators representing research, policy and practice, as well as a numerous and equally diverse audience.

The conference report presents the summary of the most important findings, discussions and policy recommendations from the seven sessions, offering  practical input on how to address structural constraints while promoting fundamental, more permanent and inclusive socio-economic transformation post-Covid 19,  in order not to go back to ‘the way things were’ but to build forward more inclusively.
