About us

The Global Inequality Project was created to make research and data on global inequality accessible to a broader audience. The project was developed by Jason Hickel, Huzaifa Zoomkawala, Dylan Sullivan, Federico Cruz, Joël Foramitti, Aaron Kimmig, Leon Beccard and colleagues and co-authors who led or contributed to the research that is presented on this website. While most entries focus on the results of new papers in political ecology and political economy, some present data drawn directly from existing sources, such as the United Nations, the World Inequality Database and the World Bank. Future pages may be added as new research is published.
