Axel West Pedersen appointed to committee on economic differences
The Government appointed committee is headed by Svein Longva.
The increase in income and wealth in Norway in recent years has been unequally distributed among the population, according to Minister of Finance Kristin Halvorsen. The aim of the new committee is to produce knowledge on the development of economic inequalities over time, the processes influencing this development, and the measures that may contribute to a more equal distribution.
NOVA and REASSESS researcher Axel West Pedersen has for many years worked on inequality in income distribution, social security and social policy in Europe.
