  • finding a shared meaning of inequality is essential
  • different dimensions of inequality; economic inequality is central, but we also need to consider specific inequalities related to gender, class, ethnicity, regional and group vulnerabilities
  • enhancing research capabilities to create a research ecosystem that also serve to support policy making and  overcome policy challenges are crucial


This forum invites participant reflections and questions on inequality issues, and recommendations moving forward. Image result for focus.png
