ERF-LIS conference: Inequality trends around the Mediterranean

The Cairo-based Economic Research Forum (ERF) and LIS have joined forces in order to exploit the richness of the microdata offered by both institutions to offer access to a harmonised common database containing income and expenditure microdata from the MENA region countries of the ERF and the LIS countries.

Following a selective process, researchers will have the opportunity to gain access to this common database in order to study inequality trends around the Mediterranean. The papers will be presented first in a conference and then they will be considered in a special issue of the Journal of Income Distribution (JID).

Stay tuned for the call for proposals on the LIS and ERF websites.
