2019 “Inequality Trends around the Mediterranean” Conference

On the 5th of December 2019, the first ERF-LIS Conference on “Inequality Trends around the Mediterranean” will be held in Cairo at the Economic Research Forum (ERF) Premises.

A call was launched early 2019 to exploit the richness of harmonized data offered by LIS and the Economic Research Forum (ERF), the two institutions have joined forces to offer access to the largest database available on harmonized income and expenditure/consumption data, to enable researchers to easily conduct socio-economic analysis of various dimensions of inequality using all datasets available from both of the institutions. 10 papers were accepted under this call. This conference is intended to provide a platform for discussing the findings of these 10 research papers, and bring insights from different stakeholders including researchers, policymakers and media.
