Poverty and Freedom: Case Studies on the U.S. and Global Economic Development

Centre for Civil Society and are pleased to invite you for the Book Launch of the Hindi Edition of "Poverty and Freedom: Case Studies on the U.S. and Global Economic Development" followed by an online panel discussion.

The book “Poverty and Freedom" focuses on case studies about efforts made by many countries to overcome similar challenges, tweaking policies and upholding the basic principles of economic and individual freedom. We believe that the translation of the book will bring forth new learning and insights for many Hindi-speaking policymakers, as well as influencers.

Join us on 18th July at 02:00 PM.

We'll be giving out e-copies of the book to the first 50 participants!
