The rarest and most powerful natural resource

The global development progress over the past decades has been unprecedented in human history. Extreme poverty has been halved and in the People’s Republic of China alone, more than 600 million people have been brought out of poverty. Child mortality has also been cut in half, with 17 000 fewer children dying every day. Read more

Promoting inclusive business through responsible business. Part 1 – Outsource production not responsibility

Inclusive business and inclusive growth have of late become powerful buzz words in the realm of international policy.

OECD Observer article

Migration challenge

Refugees form a specific type of migration, and the current wave comes at a time when public attention has been focused on migration more broadly, including economic migration. OECD Observer article
