This workshop seeks to bring together UK-based researchers working in all areas of distribution analysis.
The workshop will begin the afternoon of Thursday 4 April and end in the afternoon of Friday 5 April, with eight presentations on poverty and inequality.
We hope the event will help to showcase the topics in these areas and bolster a network of UK scholars in the field, while providing a valuable opportunity for participants at the University of Leeds in terms of research dissemination and collaborative engagement.
This workshop has been co-sponsored by the Royal Economic Society and Leeds University Business School.
