Measuring inequality in the 21st century

Symposium at UNHQ New York

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
