The European Journal of Development Research, Special Debate Section: The Politics of Poverty and Inequality


The European Journal of Development Research, Special Debate Section: The Politics of Poverty and Inequality
Prompted by the importance of the issue of inequality and the lack of significant debate about it within the development policy work, the European Journal of Development Research and UNRISD co-organized a special forum around key concerns brought up in UNRISD's flagship report, Combating Poverty and Inequality. This special forum contains essays by prominent academics working on inequality.

The journal is available online.
