The Unequal World Online Conference was held on September 28-29, 2020 and was organized by the Unequal World Research Center, IPSEC, and UN Liaison Office for IRLA and SDA.

The conference brought together top researchers, speakers from international organizations, decision-makers, diplomats and academics from diverse cultural, religious and political backgrounds from all around the world to share their experiences and exchange their research results on current topics that impact our society.

The conference theme was Human Development in the context of Current Global Challenges with the focus on multidisciplinary topics related to education, public health, human rights, global security, equality, environmental sustainability and economic development.

We hope this event raised awareness on current pressing global challenges, and provided opportunities for researchers to share values such as freedom, non-discrimination, solidarity and justice that can enhance the future of human development.
