Under the STAREBEI research grant, researcher Sandra Damijan attended The United Nations University (UNU-WIDER) development conference - "About the Inclusive Growth in Africa" - Conference, Helsinki, September 20-21, 20013.

UNU-WIDER development conference in September 2013 focused on the performance, prospects, and policies for promoting more inclusive growth throughout Africa, including North Africa. The conference encouraged dialogue between and among researchers and policy makers from the academic, government and international development communities.

Africa's economic performance has improved considerably since the 1980s and early 1990s. Nevertheless, many questions remain unanswered. For instance, has recent progress in Africa been under- or over-stated? Are certain social groups being excluded from the growth and development process? Which dimensions of poverty are leading or lagging? Has economic growth been transformative, leading to more and better jobs? What policies are required to increase the likelihood of sustaining Africa's development process in the long-run?
