Event Details


Date: 17-18 September

Location: Chadwick Building, B05 Lecture Theatre, University College London, Gower Street, WC1E 6BT.


The Priority in Practice (PiP) network was launched in 2003, bringing together an international and interdisciplinary group to explore how abstract theories of equality can be used to inform actual public policy decision making (and at the same time to consider whether current theories are adequate for this purpose). This 10th anniversary conference is the 15th PiP workshop. Whilst most have been held at UCL, PiP workshops have also been convened in Harvard, Stanford, Dublin and Windhoek (Namibia).
