This course is designed for people working in a role which demands a wider understanding of the factors perpetuating inequality and of the interventions that can play a role in reducing these inequalities and improving economic development outcomes.

The course tutor is Alan McGregor, Professor of Economic Development in the Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow.

Offered by the Economic Development Association Scotland, this course is designed for people working in a role which demands a wider understanding of the factors perpetuating inequality and of the interventions that can play a role in reducing these inequalities and improving economic development outcomes. Consideration will be given to Scottish Government policies and economic strategy in relation to inclusive growth. The underlying determinants of inequality will be examined, as well as the reasons why economic growth on its own is insufficient to deal with the problem. Finally, there will be a review of relevant and effective interventions.
