  • Workshop on Intergenerational Mobility and Wealth Inequality, WU Vienna 2022
    • I am organizing a workshop on Intergenerational Mobility and Wealth Inequality to be held at Vienna University of Economics and Business on November 17 and 18, 2022.
    • Public keynote lectures will be delivered by Miles Corak (CUNY) and Salvatore Morelli (Roma Tre / CUNY), and the program features an outstanding list of researchers affiliated with the Stone-Center on Socio-Economic Inequality (CUNY) and from WU’s Research Institute Economics of Inequality (INEQ) - and beyond. The workshop receives generous funding from the City of Vienna, the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation and the Vienna Chamber of Labour.
    • On November 16, there will be two pre-conference workshops for MSc and PhD students. (1) Piotr Paradowski from the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) will introduce the Luxembourg Wealth Study and teach essentials of using this data. (2) An amazing set of researchers provide practical tips for writing research papers, particularly in the field of income and wealth inequality.
    • Details about registration etc. follow soon.

  • Special Sessions on Inequality at the Global Conference on Economic Geography
    • I am organizing two special sessions at the upcoming 6th Global Conference on Economic Geography; Dublin June 7-9, 2022.
    • The session The Geography of Intergenerational Mobility seeks, for instance, papers on geographic perspectives on social mobility, the measurement and interpration of place-effects, the intergenerational effects of placed-based redistribution policies and local infrastructures (such as public housing, health and childcare institutions) and research discussing challenges of measuring of local/regional social mobility.
    • The second session on Income and Wealth Inequality Within and Between Regions is interested in work that jointly studies inequality within and between regions, studies addressing and underpinning the choice of (local) comparison groups, MAUP, geographic price level/living standard adjustments, and research that makes use of novel data sources among others.
