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.

The 2016 International Conference featured nearly 70 concurrent sessions, three symposia, and several networking events. The conference attracted approximately 300 attendees from around the world. Find more information about our previous International Conferences.
