Every year, for the last seven years, the Green Templeton College in Oxford hosts the Emerging Markets Symposium to promote solutions to high priority problems of human welfare in emerging market countries. The symposium “brings together authoritative and influential leaders from governments, the public and private sectors and academe to address critical sectoral issues”. Previous Symposia have focused on Health and Healthcare (2009); Urbanisation, Health and Human Security (2011), Tertiary Education (2012) Gender Inequality (2013), Maternal and Child Health (2014) and Ageing (2015). The 2016 symposium held from Jan 7 to 10 focused on the Future of Young People in the Emerging Markets. Our president, Sania Nishtar attended the symposium, both in her capacity as member of the Steering Committee of the initiative as well as a participant.
