The World Inequality Lab organises events to stimulate debate and policy discussion on inequality. Equality Debates are regular conferences where a newly published social science book is presented by the author and discussed with the public. World Inequality Conferences are organized every four years to coincide with the launch of the World Inequality Report. More occasionally, policy forums are organized in partnerships with other organizations.
