About the series
Inequalities in various forms have been rising in most parts of the world since the 1980s, but only recently has inequality begun to attract mainstream attention, including from the IMF and the World Bank.
How should the development community react to this newfound recognition of inequality or inequalities as a core element – and core problem – of development? What contemporary forms are inequalities taking, and how do they relate to diverse forms of injustice? How can these be understood – and tackled? Where are the opportunities within development to exercise intellectual leadership in this rapidly growing field?
