This research program is about inequality in its different shapes and forms: in the world, in transition economies, and in how it effects political and economic variables.
- how within-national inequalities are affected by macro economic policies or trade
- how and why regional inequalities within countries expand or not
- the effect of transition from state-controlled to market economies on inequality
- the state of global (world-wide) inequality between world citizens.
