Joep Lange Institute
On 15 March 2016, about 400 scientists, business leaders, politicians and activists from four continents gathered in Amsterdam for the inaugural event of the Joep Lange Institute. This Institute builds on the life and legacy of our founder Prof. Dr. Joep Lange.
In one of his last publications, Joep wrote 'To those who regularly visit Sub-Saharan Africa, the pace of change is indeed astonishing, and there are many reasons to be optimistic about the region. We should, however, also realize that very little has changed for the poor in rural settings, and that the lives of those who left for urban slums are extremely difficult. To include these groups in the 'great escape' from poverty is the big challenge ahead.'
