INEQ Research Seminar

INEQ organises a research seminar series, which centers on empirical research on the causes and consequences of (socio-)economic inequalities and their measurement, from both micro- and macro perspectives. As INEQ is a multidisciplinary institute, we welcome contributions across social science disciplines.

The seminars are held only in presence on Mondays at 3 pm at WU Vienna. We do not offer a live stream. Please have a look at the schedule of this term's seminars below. If you are interested in receiving regular updates of the program, please sign up for this google calendar:
