ERF organized a parallel session at the GDN’s 14th Annual Global Development Conference on Inequality, Social Protection and Inclusive Growth held in Manila, the Philippines June 19th – 21st 2013. ERF’s parallel session is a tradition that started since it partnered with GDN. The session was an opportunity to bring together global as well as  regional perspectives on inequality. These different perspectives were delivered by a distinguished panel which  included Francois Bourguignon from the Paris School of Economics, Mustapha Nabli, Former Governor of Central  Bank of Tunisia, and Rana Hendy from ERF. Moderated by Ahmed Galal, ERF Managing Director, the session  addressed the different aspects of inequality in the region.
