The SDG 8 Initiative at the University of Gothenburg has introduced thematic reviews and discussion papers on the targets of the Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG 8).
In a series of three workshops in June, the thematic groups will present drafts of their SDG 8 discussion papers and suggest areas that are relevant for the implementation of each target. There will be time for discussion and questions, involving all interested researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Chalmers, and the associated "satellite" universities in Chile, Colombia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, and Vietnam.
