Keynote Speakers

We invite submissions from scholars at all levels of seniority who are working on comparative economic inequality, broadly interpreted. Topics include (but are not restricted to) new approaches to the measurement of inequalities in income, wealth, or debt; across genders, racialised groups, class, or space. We are particularly interested in papers looking at cross-country differences using LIS/LWS or similar data but are also open to comparative work on inequalities across different socio-demographic or socio-economic groups within countries. Both theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome.


The deadline for submissions (working papers or extended abstracts) is September 15, 2024.
The conference organizers will notify all with the decisions after October 15, 2024.


Please send a title, abstract and (if available) a complete draft to
