Our approach

Our approach to inequality and poverty is tailor-made to the proposed policy. We are well-known for our assessment of the economic benefits of gender equality in Europe.  

Using multiple data sources, we can provide insights into the key drivers of inequality and poverty. Using the latest econometrics techniques, we analyse information to interpret current and future trends in wages and labour market outcomes for disadvantaged groups.  

We have done the economic assessment of Work-life balance and the minimum wage EU directives, the introduction of basic income and of an EU-wide unemployment benefits system.
