Annual Intereconomics/CEPS conference
Inefficient Inequality: The Economic Costs of Gender Inequality in Europe
Conference Program (PDF)
Brussels · 3 November 2016 · 09:00 am - 04:00 pm
Much attention in research is given to the existence and measurement of gender inequality, but relatively little attention is given to the costs that result from the presence of inequality. At this conference researchers, policy-makers, and business representatives will discuss the costs and inefficiencies that result from gender inequality. What are potential solutions? Which policies? At what level?
Join us and put your view forward.
Studies and conclusions will then be published in a coming issue of Intereconomics.
