Conference "Inequality—Measurement, trends, impacts, and policies"
This conference on ‘Inequality – measurement, trends, impacts, and policies’ focuses on the latest developments in the measurement of inequality in income, wealth, and human development, drawing also on advances in measurements in the advanced economies. It will examine what we know about trends in inequality. It will discuss the impact of inequality on development, and the impact of development on inequality. And as the global development debate moves from the Millennium Development Goals to the post-2015 development agenda, the conference will draw out the implications of inequality for development policy and poverty reduction. This includes ways to develop efficient and equitable social protection and tax systems for redistribution. The conference will share country and regional experiences in containing and reducing inequality, including those from advanced economies as well as low- and middle-income countries.
