The first conference on the economic impact of technological transformation, globalisation and migration will take place on 23 September 2022 at the University of Agder, Norway.
Over the past decades, inequality within populations has widened in the majority of countries, regarding many dimensions of life. This has been of central concern for both policymakers and researchers alike. To formulate remedies, we must have an integral understanding of the drivers of such widening inequality and their interactions. In addition, we must understand the strengths and weaknesses of our current institutions to deal with these issues. The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers from different disciplines to share and discuss their recent findings related to widening income inequality, livings standards and prosperity more broadly.
Researchers from all fields of economics, political science and sociology are invited to present new research results and discuss possible directions for future research activities. We welcome the submission of papers with an empirical, theoretical, and/or policy orientation focusing on micro- or macroeconomic aspects of inequalities linked to globalisation, migration and technological change. The analysis should focus on Europe or be related to it. READ MORE
