Fourth IIPF Doctoral School 2017 "Dynamics of Inequality" - International Institute of Public Finance
The topic of the 2017 edition of the school will be the dynamics of inequality, and the convenors will be two distinguished scholars on this topic: - Uwe Sunde, Professor of Economics, University of Munich - Matteo Cervellati, Professor of Economics, University of Bologna. The school will address the long-term dynamics of inequality by presenting relevant facts and discussing questions and methodology on the current frontier of this research area. Lectures, presentations and discussions will cover several aspects of the evolution of inequality. The topics include the facts regarding short-run and long-run dynamics of inequality in different dimensions: the determinants of inequality, the consequences in terms of policy and institutional change; and the dynamic interaction between economic inequality, demographic inequality and political inequality. The focus will be on both empirical and theoretical applications. Anyone who is currently enrolled in a relevant PhD programme, or has graduated from a relevant PhD programme within the last 3 years, is invited to apply to participate in the school. The IIPF especially encourages applications from low and middle income countries.
