British Academy Conferences bring together scholars and specialists from around the world to consider and evaluate new research in the humanities and social sciences.

Inequalities are at the forefront of today’s public and policy debates. The IFS Deaton Review of Inequalities, chaired by Nobel laureate Sir Angus Deaton, is a multi-year interdisciplinary endeavour involving many of the world’s leading thinkers. It is examining when and why inequalities are problematic and when they are not; how different forms of inequality are related; the major forces combining to create inequalities; and the mix of policies that can be used to tackle them. This conference will address these big questions, drawing on the wealth of evidence produced for the Review so far.
