Project description

Exploring income inequality in developed economies

The number of developed countries that are experiencing an increase in both economic growth and income inequality has been on the rise in recent decades. To reverse this trend, it’s important to identify the reasons why some social groups are more successful than others. The EU-funded WYLM project will explore the role local governmental policies play in shaping labour market results of vulnerable groups in their societies. WYLM will focus on two socially-at-risk groups that experience income inequality. Specifically, it will study refugees granted asylum in the Netherlands through their placement across municipalities and Dutch parents of children with a disability using a decentralisation reform of youth care responsibilities.
