– We opened the debate on the eight MDGs and further engaged in a overview of the post-2015 development agenda;
– Professor Thomas Pogge from Yale University touched upon the relevance of the new SDGs and introduced his global initiative, Academics Stand Against Poverty (ASAP);

Conceived as a knowledge-sharing process, within the Review we developed several featured partnerships that provide us with a tremendous professional input from the field (ASAP, PATRIR, etc.)
