EU-AFD Research Facility on Inequalities: "Multidimensional inequality in Western Africa"

About this event

The Research Facility on Inequalities, a partnership between the European Commission (DevCo) and AFD, has launched its series of weekly webinars. After three years of research aiming to understand and address inequalities in developing and emerging countries, it is now time to share some of the results.

Join us for the fifth session of the EU-AFD Research Facility on Inequalities’ webinars to be held on Monday, June 22nd at 5.00 pm CEST, dedicated to the project Analyzing the multidimensional inequality and impacts of regional policy on inequality.

Ana Claver Muñoz and Cristina Rovira Izquierdo, project manager on inequalities and inequality programme advisor at Oxfam Intermón, will present the paper “Multidimensional inequality in Western Africa”.

Even if we know less unequal societies are desirable given their beneficial economic, social and political outcomes, there is still uncertainty on which are the best routes to understand and tackle inequalities through a multidimensional perspective. To contribute to this global conversation on inequalities, Oxfam, academics from the CASE at the LSE and the SOAS, joined efforts to develop a conceptual and measurement framework to assess inequalities in seven areas that matter for human life, such as life and health, education or participation: the Multidimensional Inequality Framework. This research project uses this framework in order to assess these inequalities at sub-regional levels in West Africa (but also in Central America), identify potential causes and explore effective regional policies for inequality reduction.

You can also find the schedule of upcoming webinars on the Research Facility on Inequalities’ website in the “Events” section.

For those of you who were not able to join us for the previous sessions, you will also find the replays on our webpage.
