WIDER Project on Spatial Disparities in Human Development

In response to the number and quality of papers submitted for the Cornell/LSE/WIDER Conference on Spatial Inequality and Development, a further conference has been scheduled, focusing specifically on Spatial Inequality in Latin America. The conference will be organized by the Institute of Public Policy and Development Studies at Universidad de las Americas-Puebla, Mexico, on November 1, 2, and 3rd, 2002.

The organizers invite submissions of completed papers or substantial abstracts that describe and analyze the evolution and state of spatial inequality in Latin America (either within country or region-wide). A broad view is taken of inequality, covering the distribution of such variables as economic activity, economic structure, population, income, social indicators, infrastructure and public expenditure.

Papers selected for the conference will in turn be considered for a special issue of a leading English language Latin American Journal, to be edited by Ravi Kanbur (Cornell University), Luis F. Lopez-Calva (Colegio de México and UDLAP) and Tony Venables (London School of Economics).
