Reducing inequality – the great challenge of our time

WIDER Development Conference in partnership with UNIANDES, 5-7 October 2022, in Bogotá, Colombia
United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER) in partnership with Universidad de los Andes (UNIANDES) convenes a three-day conference on reducing inequality, held in Bogotá, Colombia, on 5-7 October 2022. Programme, registration, and other details coming soon.

As new research uncovers the many negative impacts that high inequality can have, a consensus is emerging that achieving SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities is a global goal of critical importance.

This WIDER Development Conference, the second of 2022, provides a forum to discuss innovative, theoretical, and empirical research on inequality, and its policy take-aways. It will take stock of where we are, evaluate progress made, and identify what challenges lay ahead.

The programme will address major themes in inequality across keynote lectures, parallel sessions, and a policy dialogue event. Speakers include leading scholars of inequality, including Raquel Fernández and Francisco H.G. Ferreira. In addition, a parallel series organized by the VII Colombian Economy Congress, will form part of the programme. The event will close with the WIDER Annual Lecture 2022, given by Daron Acemoğlu.
