Course contents

The course aims to face the issue of inequality from a multidimensional perspective. We will address a series of topics in this area by capturing aspects related to both measurement and empirical evaluations and case studies. Ample space will be given to the role of the state and to the potential policy interventions that are adopted in the literature to combat inequality and poverty in societies.
