Inclusive growth has been evoked in government plans and policy briefs across developing and developed countries over the last decade. While there is still limited consensus in the academic discourse on what constitutes ‘inclusiveness’, it is nearly universally accepted that it is desirable. Further, there has been a call for inclusive development going beyond assessment of poverty, economic inequality, and employment opportunities. Dimensions included in inclusive development can span from labour productivity and infrastructure to intergenerational equity and sustainability. The conference proposes to explore this idea further by discussing desirable growth outcomes that ought to be considered indispensable to inclusive development.

How do capability enhancing services (such as access to health and education) affect inclusiveness and how inclusive have these services been?
