The current global economic system is failing people because it remains colonial, unjust and unsustainable. But is the decolonisation of economics a solution, and what does this mean in practice? What role, if any, should the sector play in reimagining and re-building an economic system where everyone can thrive?
In the second event in Bond’s Future Dialogues series, attendees heard from speakers about emerging economic ideas, based on fairness, sustainability and equity, that will inspire us to redefine the sector’s purpose and its approach to sustainable development.
The speakers for the session were:
- Priya Lukka, consultant, Economist
- Surbhi Kesar, lecturer, Department of Economics at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS)
- Sandra Martinsone, policy manager, Bond
