Kapuscinski Development Lecture

 Registration is closed for this event


The University Centre for Development Cooperation (UCOS) invites you to a new exclusive Kapuscinski Development Lecture in Brussels on October, 12. Former World Bank Lead Economist Branko Milanovic will give a talk on "Globalization, migration, and the future of the middle classes": 

- Does high inequality “exhaust” a society and cancel all positive effects of economic development? 
- How can we understand recent changes in global income distribution and their future evolution?

Branco Milanovic will discuss these recent changes in global income distribution, the creation of a "global middle class", and the stagnation of median incomes in the West. The focus of this lecture will be more global in scope.

Who is Branko Milanovic? 

Branko Milanović is a Serbian-American economist and specialist on 'development and inequality'. Milanovic’s main area of work is income inequality, in individual countries and globally. He has published a number of articles and books on the methodology and empirics of global income distribution and the effects of globalization. His new book, Global Inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization (2016), addresses economic and political issues of globalization, including the redefinition of the “Kuznets cycles.”
