    For Richer... or Poorer? The Capture of Growth and Politics in Emerging Economies
    This summary paper – which draws from a forthcoming research report commissioned by civil society networks across the BRICSAMIT countries – aims to increase the urgency to tackle the structural causes of inequality, by shedding light on the nature and scope of the issue in the BRICSAMIT, and the economic, political and social consequences these countries are now facing as a result. It looks at the conditions that enabled the rise of the super-rich and how political and media capture by this elite is undermining democracy and undermining most attempts to reduce inequality. The paper concludes with recommendations of ways in which growth and development could be used to make our societies more equal.

    Save the Date: 'Goal 10 SDGs Reducing Inequality: Desirable But Is It Feasible?'
    Goal 10 in the SDGs document contains targets to reduce inequality within countries and between countries. To ensure the technical and political conditions, several issues need to be resolved: to what extent are indicators adequate? what are the implementation mechanisms for the realization of Goal 10 at international and national levels? To address these questions, INFID has organized a side event in NYC at the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Indonesia 325 East 38th Street, New York on September 24 from 14:30 - 17:10. Please RSVP: sekar@infid.org.
