For the last seven years, the Green Templeton College in Oxford hosts the Emerging Markets Symposium to promote solutions to high priority problems of human welfare in emerging market countries.
Issues covered during the last years include health, education, gender inequality as well as ageing (2015) and youth (2016).
This year’s Emerging Markets Symposium, chaired by former Pakistan Prime Minister, Shaukat Aziz and sponsored by the C&C Alpha Group, brought together 45 international experts and 14 graduate students from 20 emerging market and high income countries. Hosted by Green Templeton College on 7-10 January, the symposium was designed to ensure its conclusions were grounded in the insights and priorities of young people - more than a third of the participants were under 30.
ILC-GA’s co-President Dr Alexandre Kalache was invited to participate in his capacity as a newly appointed EMS Board member. Dr Kalache was invited as a participant to link this and last year’s themes and to ensure that the discussions include a life-course perspective.
