Peru and the Persistence of Inequality

This conference will see Peruvian and European academics and development professionals come together to discuss the causes and consequences of inequality in Peru.

High rates of economic growth over recent years are often cited as evidence of Peru’s developmental success. While such growth has undoubtedly brought significant benefits, these have not been evenly distributed throughout the country. Inequality and poverty remain serious issues.

This year’s annual conference will examine the causes and consequences of inequality in Peru. It will feature discussion of a wide range of issues, including the effectiveness of state social programmes, distribution of mining profits, and the link between poverty and increased coca cultivation.
