At the Mini-conference on 8 June, the research leaders presented the results of the research team’s work, both already published findings and ongoing works, produced through extensive international collaboration. In addition, invited speakers from Hungary presented the results of their research on income inequality.
In addition to the 8 public presentations, the workshop days were divided into four thematic sessions. A total of 19 papers were presented by international co-authors and guests who came from several European countries, the United States, South Korea and Japan. In addition, three thematic areas (gender-based income inequalities, inequalities faced by immigrants, the role of networks in the labour market) allowed for longer discussions on possible future comparative projects.
Based on the feedback from participants, the presentations and discussions deemed extremely fruitful, the social programmes were a lasting experience for our guests and the organisation of the event was very smooth.
The organisers would like to thank the Centre for Economic and Regional Research for providing the venue, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences for the international conference grant and the Secretariat of the Institute of Economics for their support in the organisation of the conference.
