With more than a billion people living on less than one dollar per day and with gaps in living conditions growing within and between countries, inequality, poverty and human well-being remain core issues for researchers and policy-makers alike.

WIDER's international conference will provide an opportunity to review recent advances in analytical concepts and methods and identify ways in which future research on inequality, poverty and human well-being can make best use of these advances.

The wide range of topics to be covered include:

· Measuring Human Well-being
· Spatial Inequality
· Global Trends in Inequality and Poverty
· Micro Simulation Studies
· Modelling Approaches (Dynamic, CGE etc.)
