KNOW Dialogue in Urban Equality #8: Rethinking prosperity

This month, the KNOW dialogue will focus on metrics as powerful forms of urban knowledge and the role they play in shaping how prosperity and inequality are conceptualised, measured and acted on in cities. 

IGP Director Professor Henrietta Moore and Dr Jose Gabriel Palma from Cambridge University - renowned scholars who have taken radically different approaches to developing new prosperity and inequality metrics - will be invited to offer critical reflections on metrics as a form of urban governance. They will explore scope for the co-production of metrics with city stakeholders - citizens, communities, governments, NGOs and business - and what new forms of knowledge can contribute to pathways to equality.

Chaired by:

  • Professor Caren Levy
