Yale World Fellows and Conectas present:
In recent years, Brazil, Mexico and Nigeria have been called emerging powers - but each of them continues to struggle with violence, corruption, impunity, absence of the rule of law, discrimination and inequality.
How do emerging economies promote and guarantee human rights in the midst of meteoric growth?
This informal roundtable featuring Yale World Fellows, will cover the role of civil society in this process, main challenges that persist, concrete solutions and lessons learned.

Yale World Fellows are headed to Sao Paulo.
We’ve teamed up with GIFE, a Brazilian organization focused on furthering social investment in Brazil, for a panel event: Driving Inclusion in Emerging Economies.
This event is free and open to the public: Please join us.
Sponsored by Yale World Fellows and the The Lemann Foundation, the event will focus on some key questions: How can high growth countries work towards broad inclusion? How can philanthropy and impact investing help even the playing field? What are some lessons learned over the past decade and what are the opportunities and challenges ahead? Panelists (including Yale World Fellows) from USA, Brazil, Mexico, and Nigeria will share their experiences from their respective work in the fields of innovation, impact investing and philanthropy.
