Welcome to Pathways to Resilience IV: Global South Perspectives
It is a pleasure to invite you to Pathways to Resilience IV to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, June 14-16, 2017. This fourth Pathways conference will be the first one that the Resilience Research Centre (RRC) at Dalhousie University has hosted outside of Halifax, Canada. The RRC is proud to co-host the event with the Optentia Research Focus Area at North-West University, South Africa and with organizational support of the Primary Healthcare Directorate, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Cape Town. Our goal is to focus on the Global South where people are often disproportionately challenged by double and triple jeopardies (e.g., being both socially marginalized because of race, gender, ability or class, while at the same time experiencing climate change, armed conflict, and structural inequality).
