Flagship Policies to Combat Inequality and Exclusion (Consultation Draft)

Following two years of research and mobilization, the Pathfinders Grand Challenge on Inequality and Exclusion is setting out a consultation draft of policy priorities for immediate and longer-term actions to tackle inequality and exclusion, with a particular focus on an inclusive and sustainable COVID-19 recovery. These policy priorities will serve as the foundation for a comprehensive menu of policy options for addressing inequality and exclusion, to be published as a flagship report by the Grand Challenge in the Fall of 2021.

In 2020, Pathfinders Grand Challenge on Inequality and Exclusion served as a platform to exchange governments’ and other stakeholders' perspectives on the successes, lessons learned, and the challenges of addressing inequality and exclusion in the context of COVID-19. The Grand Challenge sought to identify promising avenues for action and recommendations based on evidence-based, solution-oriented research by partners. Guided by the overarching framework laid out in the Grand Challenge framing paper (2019), the initiative undertook comprehensive research in a wide range of political, social, and economic policy areas. The resulting policy options outlined in this consultation draft intends to encompass and complement foundational policies, such as universal public services, progressive taxation, and workers rights as covered in the Commitment to Reducing Inequality Index.
