Inequalities and
Discriminations

About

Despite some progress made on the world’s most pressing development challenges, such as extreme poverty, inequalities and discriminations remain pervasive and structurally embedded in societies across the globe. Where and how one is born too often determines life-long access to opportunities and services such as education and employment. Our goal is to contribute to the growing body of knowledge on intersectional inequalities, leveraging (big) data to build evidence that considers vulnerable populations and subgroups — their identities and experiences — and leads to the suggestion of corrective actions.
