APPAM International Conference
Inequalities: Addressing the Growing Challenge for Policymakers Worldwide

June 13-14, 2016
London School of Economics

 

Conference Co-Chairs: Jane Waldfogel, Columbia University and John Hills, International Inequalities Institute, London School of Economics

Inequalities are a growing challenge within and between countries around the world. What do we know about the nature and sources of inequalities in important domains such as education, health, economic and social well-being, and rights? And what can – and should – policymakers do to address them? This international conference will provide the opportunity for policy researchers and analysts from around the globe to gather and share the latest research and knowledge on this pressing challenge.
