Measuring inequality in the 21st century

Symposium at UNHQ New York

Measuring Inequality in the 21st Century

The Human Development Report Office, LIS, the Stone Center at the City University of New York (CUNY), UNU-WIDER and the World Inequality Lab will host a symposium on Measuring Inequality in the 21st Century. The 2-day event will be held 28-29 March, at the UN Headquarters in New York.

The Symposium will revisit the frontier debate on inequality measurement to contribute towards a basic consensus on the issues and priorities to guide policy makers, inform intergovernmental consultations regarding the state of measures of inequality in the world, and push a collaborative agenda to refine concepts, data and methodological approaches on inequality.

UNU-WIDER Director, Kunal Sen, and Research Fellow, Carlos Gradín, will present research from the project: Inequality in the Giants  

As part of this symposium, on 29 March there will be a public event, ‘Rethinking inequality and what to do about it’. For more information and to register click here
