The IUSSP Scientific Panel on Population, Poverty and Inequality invites economists, demographers, economic demographers, sociologist, and scholars from other related disciplines to submit their research on the interactions between population dynamics, poverty and inequality.
The 2nd IUSSP Population, Poverty, and Inequality conference will be jointly organized with Agence Française de Développement (AFD), a leading institution that funds, supports and accelerates the transitions to a fairer and more sustainable world.
In examining the interaction of population with poverty and inequality, the Panel is interested in the causal impact in both directions: poverty and inequality impacting population dynamics, and population dynamics affecting poverty and inequality. The conference has a focus on policy-relevant research germane to low- and middle-income settings and welcomes studies on how the intersection of population, poverty and inequality is shaped by public policy.
The Panel invites submissions from scholars using secondary source data analysis, natural experiments, and encourages those who have primary data collection for baseline data analysis, policy and program evaluations, mixed methods, and big data, to bring a range of data analysis methods to spark the advancement of science addressing old problems and present emerging topics.
The conference is a friendly and inclusive forum, and the format will enable scholars and policy makers from around the world to engage and collaborate. As such, we ask that participants attend the 2.5 to 3 days of the conference.
