The International conference by the Researchers beyond borders aims to bring researchers alongside stakeholders to Durban (in March, 2020), to present their latest findings on sustainable development goals, poverty and inequality. Local and international researchers are expected to discuss these themes either from a South African; international perspective, or from that of their native countries.

It is anticipated that this conference will contribute to the on-going discourses around – achieving the Sustainable development goals by 2030, poverty alleviation debates, as well as the ever widening inequality gap amongst the ‘have’ and ‘have nots’. A number of high quality publications are also expected to emerge after the conference. Researchers who intend to publish their work are advised to email our secretariat –
