Two lectures from the series ‘Inequality and..’ lecture series have been published in the Journal of Income Distribution. The lecture series, which has been running since 2013 and features prominent speakers on various aspects of inequality, is co-organised by FNR PEARL Chairs Professors Conchita D’Ambrosio and Louis Chauvel.
The lecture featured in the peer-review Journal of Income Distribution focuses on ‘Inequality and Conflict’, and was delivered by Professor Joan Maria Esteban, Institut d’Anàlisi Econòmica & Barcelona GSE. It tackles questions such as ‘Which factors influence social conflict?’ ‘Do ethnic divisions predict conflict within countries?’ ‘How do we conceptualise those divisions?’ ‘If ethnic cleavages and conflicts are related, how do we interpret such a result?’ ‘Is ethnicity instrumental achieving political power or economic gain?’.
This is the second lecture in the series ‘Inequality and..’ that has been published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Income Distribution.
The first lecture published in the journal in late 2017, focuses on ‘Inequality and the super rich’, presenting the latest academic research about the evolution of top income and wealth positions around the Western world, what we know about the central determinants and how economic policy contributes to shaping these outcomes. The speaker for the published lecture, which took place in 2016, was Daniel Waldenström from Uppsala University. You can also watch the whole lecture on the University of Luxembourg website.
FNR PEARL Chairs Professors Conchita D’Ambrosio and Louis Chauvel from the University of Luxembourg organise the lecture series jointly with the European Investment Bank Institute, the Chambre des Salariés of Luxembourg, the Economists Club of Luxembourg, the European Commission, the LIS, LISER and STATEC and others with financial support from the FNR’s RESCOM scheme.
