Ahead of G20 [Ep. 3] | G20 as a Driver to Reduce Poverty and Reignite Growth
At the time of the Covid-19 outbreak of last year, many hoped that social and business restrictions would last a few days or weeks. A year later, the world is mourning the loss of millions of lives while still facing the economic and social effects of the pandemic. With vaccination programs now underway, it is time to implement strategies to address poverty and reignite growth. Reducing poverty has often been a core tenet of most faiths and beliefs. In recent years, studies have shown the positive correlation of freedom of religion or belief and economic growth and prosperity. Our speakers will discuss how religious communities can be a valuable resource due to their extensive experience “on the ground.”

The panel will be in English and will run approximately 1 hour. We encourage active participation from the attendees by submitting questions in advance or during the webinar.

Speakers:
Dr. Jeffrey Franks, Ph.D., Assistant Director of the European Department, International Monetary Fund

Dr. Brian Grim, Ph.D., President, Religious Freedom and Business Foundation

Dr. Samia Huq, Ph.D., Associate Professor (ESS) and Dean, General Education, Department of Economics and Social Sciences, BRAC University

Moderator:
Prof. Katherine Marshall, Executive Director, World Faiths Development Dialogue and Vice President, G20 Interfaith Association
