One of the most severe consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic and the strategies adopted to contain the outbreak of the disease is the intensification of inequalities. ZEW, in cooperation with Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano and the Society for the Study of Economic Inequality, organizes a special policy session of the ZEW Research Seminar to discuss several aspects of this issue from a global perspective with renowned experts. The event will take place as a Zoom webinar and is open to the public.
