SPPG Professor and RBC Chair in Applied Social Work Research Daniyal Zuberi spoke at this year’s RBC Conference: The Inclusive and Sustainable City of the 21st Century.
Professor Zuberi discussed urban inequality in North American cities during his discussion at the conference. He discussed how, “For many people who don’t have resources, they’re increasingly left behind, socially isolated, simply pushed out into either the least desirable parts of these cities or into the suburbs, or they are forced to move to other cities”.
