Rising national income and wealth inequalities are one of the dominant adverse trends that the world has experienced over the past three/four decades. Since this coincides with consolidation of the “second globalization”, an obvious question is to what extent the rules that govern formally or informally the global economy are basic determinants of these trends. This implies putting together two brands of ongoing research and debates –those that relate to growing national inequalities and global rules— to analyze the interactions between the two and draw lessons of how global governance arrangements must be reformed to counteract these trends. This project intends to study this important issue by first conducting a seminar among two main investigators and relevant researchers to fill the information gap before finalizing the research agenda and procedures to prepare for the policy project application. IPD's discussion-based seminar included experts from multilaterial agencies and academia. This seminar was a big success in terms of helping us narrow our research focus.
