The World Inequality Lab organises events to stimulate debate and policy discussion on inequality. Equality Debates are regular conferences featuring the presentation of new research around the theme of equality and inequality, followed by a discussion with the audience. World Inequality Conferences are organized every four years to coincide with the launch of the World Inequality Report. More occasionally, other events and policy forums are organized in partnerships with other organizations.
