Trends in inequality: social, economic and political issues
The Scientific Committee of an upcoming International Conference on Inequality invites manuscripts for a Special Issue of the Journal of Income Distribution (JID) “Trends in inequality: social, economic and political issues”. The Journal of Income Distribution is one of the oldest journals dedicated to the subject of income distribution. It offers to scholars the opportunity to disseminate their research in all aspects of income distribution and redistribution.
The Special Issue “Trends in inequality: social, economic and political issues” will be a selection of papers submitted in response to the call for papers for the International Conference on Inequality - Trends in inequality: social, economic and political issues to be held on 2-4 November, 2017, in Bologna (Italy). The aim of the Conference is to focus on recent trends in social and economic inequality at the national and international levels, from a variety of perspectives and contributions from all social sciences, including economics, sociology, social psychology, gender studies, development studies, statistics and political sciences, to expand existing perspectives and discussions. The Conference will present contributions from scholars and researchers and is open to all disciplinary studies. Papers that belong to one of the following five topic areas will be considered:
A. Inequality: meaning, conceptualization and evidence-based drivers of inequality
B. Economic consequences of inequality: on growth, labor, migration and long-term development
C. Non-economic consequences of inequality: health and education inequalities, labor and work-place, political participation and social capital
D. Addressing inequality through economic policy: redistribution policies, fiscal policies, sector policies; gender-based and rights-based social policies (education, health care, family and child care); urban development policies.
E. Addressing inequality with other policies: social mobility, intergenerational transfers; unequal exchange, territorial disequilibria; lagging development; minorities and discrimination.
