Sanam Naraghi Anderlini - Keynote Speaker at Conflict, Security, and Development Conference 2021 (King's College London)

June 11, 2021

12:30-13:30 (ET) / 17:30-18:30 (BST)
The violence of global inequality: a symptom of a greater disease
Despite the quantum leap in knowledge and technology, inequality is pervasive in all spheres. Something that the COVID-19 crisis is only exacerbating. Far from just physical, violence should also be understood as the long-term impact of these structural inequalities on individuals and communities around the world.

The harmful consequences of persisting inequality are especially visible in societies experiencing conflict or immediately after, when stability, security and development are scarce.

We have decided to dedicate this year’s conference to explore inequality from a multi-disciplinary lens. We will analyse inequality through its relationship with critical issues such as climate change, food security, gender, the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the inequality-conflict nexus.

The conference is a two-day event curated entirely by students for a live student audience. Since the conference was founded eight years ago, it has grown into a crucial event in the KCL calendar year. Our goal is to bring together exceptional minds from a range of backgrounds to participate in panels that foster learning and provoke conversations that matter.
