Today is the launch of LACIR, a network of renowned scholars on the topic and coordinated by the IDB, Institute for Fiscal Studies, London School of Economics and Yale University.
The objective of the Latin American and Caribbean Inequality Review (LACIR) is to advance on the understanding of the nature, causes and consequences of Latin America’s persistent high inequality to provide a basis for action intended to make the region more equitable. It is an independent scholarly endeavour created with the aim of understanding why, despite major structural economic and social change, inequality in Latin America and the Caribbean persists at exceptionally high levels.
The review will focus on inequality along various dimensions, including income, wealth, education, health, and political power. The review is overseen by a panel of fifteen researchers led by a team including IFS International Research Fellow Orazio Attanasio and Deputy Research Director Sonya Krutikova, and the panel includes CPP Director Richard Blundell and Research Associate Antonella Bancalari.
