2021 - Healing the Big Fractures in the Economy, Politics & Society

Tenth Annual JRCPPF Conference | February 18-19, 2021

The past year has revealed deep fractures in our economy, polity, and society, endangering not only lives but also long-term livelihoods. As policymakers chart a transition to a more inclusive recovery, how do we heal these fractures? This conference explores the structural changes and innovative thinking required to restore norms, increase investment, and sustain economic growth that benefits all.
