Poverty, Inequality & Inclusive Growth research group

We study the paradox of persistent poverty and inequality in emerging economies. We ask: what makes growth more equitable? How can poverty be ended? We consider the causes of poverty in emerging economies and the factors that prevent people from escaping it.

We also study the new and insecure middle classes, whose ascendance shows they have benefited from economic growth, but who remain vulnerable to economic slow-downs
