Inequality

Overcoming inequality is at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals. Major progress has been made on poverty reduction, but without a clear baseline regarding the current state of global inequality, policy and action become less effective.

UNU research is building comprehensive databases to inform policymakers and governments of where, why, and to what extent global income inequality exists. The aim is to clarify the social and political dynamics that drive inequality, so that policy and social support systems can respond to chronic and emerging trends.
