Ensuring Rights and Promoting Justice for Marginalised People”, May 18-21, 2021.

Background
The Right Livelihood College (RLC) is a global education and research initiative of universities and

The workshop
The workshop will take place online via Zoom from May 18-21, 2021. It focuses on research and practice concerned with rights and justice for marginalised people and practical concepts to improve their access to opportunities and resources. Geographic foci will be in Africa and Asia. The topic will be tackled in a transdisciplinary way, combining case studies from social, economic, and
political/cultural sciences with best practice examples from civil society action and agency.
The key workshop resource persons will be “Alternative Nobel Prize” Laureates and other experts from practice and academia from around the world. PhD students will be invited to discuss their
research work in a cohesive transdisciplinary way by building on each participant’s experience.
The workshop targets the following objectives:
• to strengthen knowledge and understanding of concepts of justice and marginalisation in a development context in Africa and Asia,
• to critically assess the situation of different groups of marginalized people in the current development agenda,
• to present own case studies, and
• to promote transmission of expertise and experience between PhD students, senior scholars, and academia.
