Sixth World Conference on Remedies to Racial and Social Inequality

September 3 – 5, 2024
Cape Town, South Africa

The Roy Wilkins Center at the University of Minnesota will be co-hosting the Sixth World Conference on Remedies to Racial and Social Inequality with the University of Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa. This sixth edition of the World Conference will reflect the many significant events that have affected our perspectives on inequality and discrimination since we last met in 2018:

  1. Changing global awareness of inequality and discrimination, in light of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McLain, and others
  2. Global pandemic that highlighted new types and sources of inequality to the world
  3. Stronger understanding of inequality in the context of the climate and health challenges facing the world

We hope you will consider joining us at this important event, whether you:

  1. Submit a paper to share your latest research on racial and social issues with this global gathering
  2. Decide to lead or join a delegation of colleagues to participate and/or present during this three-day dialogue about effecting change globally
  3. Want to attend to learn and participate in a dynamic exploration of issues affecting every corner of the globe – either in person or virtually
