  • FAQs

    How are featured policies selected?

    Featured policies are selected based on two key criteria: whether the policy aims to reduce inequality and/or exclusion, and whether the policy has been successful. The research team at the Pathfinders Grand Challenge on Inequality & Exclusion seeks to provide a diverse selection of policies applicable to a range of political, social and economic contexts and across geographies to ensure a broad representation of effective policies.

    How can I share an inequality-related policy idea with you?

    To contribute an innovative policy to the portal, email info@inequalitysolutions.com with your idea! The portal is a collaborative project between individuals and organizations who care about reducing inequality globally and is constantly growing.

    How will the portal account for new policies happening in real-time?

    Our team will add new policies and contributions from individuals and organizations over time, while working to ensure regular updates are made to the already published policies to account for policy updates or new assessments related to the policies. This ensures that the portal remains a relevant, useful, and live resource for reducing inequality globally. To check the date of the latest update, please refer to the policy summary.

    Who is the Inequality Solutions portal for?

    Inequality Solutions aims to serve a broad audience that is interested in reducing inequality and exclusion. Specifically, the portal provides examples of applicable policies to policymakers, resources for researchers and students, civil society and activists. The mission is to develop a comprehensive data bank of policies to bring about a more just and equal society. By sharing knowledge, successes, and best practices, we aim to catalyze global transformation and build worldwide awareness of the methods to deliver equality and inclusion.
