Inefficient Inequality: The economic costs of gender inequality in Europe

Annual CEPS-Intereconomics Conference

Much attention has been given in academic research to the existence and measurement of gender inequality, but relatively little attention has been paid to the costs that result from the presence of inequality. At this conference, researchers, policy-makers and business representatives will discuss the costs and inefficiencies that result from gender inequality. What are the potential solutions? Which policies would need to be implemented? And at what level?

Join us and share your views on these important questions.

The studies presented at the conference will then be published in a forthcoming issue of Intereconomics.
