3rd Southern Voice Research Conference: Shaping an equitable post-COVID world: the role of Global South think tanks

Southern Voice is organizing the 3rd Southern Voice Research Conference from 9-11 November 2021.

The aim of Southern Voice's conference is to seek solutions for an equitable recovery from the pandemic. We understand equity as an ideal state in which the pandemic does not exacerbate the existing inequalities.

The crisis offers the opportunity to aid individuals and networks with resources and support for them to thrive. During the conference, The Conference will discuss on how to promote an equitable recovery. It will pay particular attention to the role of think tanks from the Global South to foster transformative policies and rebalance power at multiple levels.
