Open Dialogue on Inequality in the 21st Century: Rethinking inequality and what to do about it
29 Mar 2019 -  Inequality is a defining challenge of our time. But what does it really look like? Do we have the right measures of inequality? How is it changing? And what might this mean for societies worldwide for the rest of the 21st Century?
The 2019 Human Development Report, to be released towards the end of this year, will delve into these issues and beyond by focusing on understanding the dimensions of inequality most important to people’s well-being and the forces at play.
