The IEA will host the Richard Koch Breakthrough Prize Awards Dinner at Macmillan Hall in Senate House at the University of London. This room seems an appropriate place to discuss new ideas for alleviating poverty, as it is the same room where the Beveridge Report was presented 75 years ago.
This event is private and by invitation only. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
