The JHU-UPF Public Policy Center studies poverty and social inequalities, their causes, and their effects on both individuals and social groups, as well as possible policy interventions available to try to address them. While this is a cross-cutting theme that runs through most of our research lines, some additional research areas are:

  • The evaluation of intertwined social and wellbeing consequences of economic crises.
  • Intergenerational inequalities in the European Union (EU).
  • The social effects and implications of implementing universal basic Income.
  • Inequalities in the production of global health inequalities research and related research capacities.
