Event: Special Issues "Economic inequality and redistribution policies"
Submission Deadline: July 31, 2021
Description: ECONOMÍA Journal was initially established as the “Revista Economía” of the Department of Economics of the Pontificia Universidad Católica of Peru (PUCP) in 1977. It is the oldest academic journal on economics in the country. In this special issue of ECONOMIA, we seek to attract papers discussing the interplay between redistributive policies and the patterns of economic inequality, intergenerational mobility and inequality of opportunity in both low-income and advanced countries, even in perspective.
Eligibility: Our primary interest is on papers analyzing the  extent at which taxation systems and tax reforms, as well as education policies, affect the distribution of income heterogeneously across background characteristics. The topic of perceptions and beliefs about inequality and (the political economy of) support for redistribution is also central to this call. Theoretical, applied and methodological contributions studying trends and geographic patterns in inequality, inequality of (basic) opportunities, public support for redistribution and tax policies, (mis-)perceptions of inequality and how beliefs about fairness in the distribution and redistribution of income are also welcome.

Organization: Statistics, Politics and Policy Journal
Event: Special Issue "Inequality" Vol. 2021 No. 3
Submission Deadline: August 1, 2021
Description: In recent years, the topic of inequality has received particularly strong attention in the academic world. But not least since Piketty's book ‘Capital in the 21st Century’, the subject has also reached a broader audience and has become widely discussed in the media and public sphere. Latest research indicates that inequality is growing during the Coronavirus Pandemic with unprecedented speed and continues to fuel many political phenomena related to political polarization and extremism. Inequality and its consequences are too persistent, intertwined, and widespread to be examined exclusively from an economic perspective, as it can impact almost all policy areas and societal fields. In addition, different academic disciplines deal with inequalities from various perspectives and with different methodological toolkits.
Eligibility: We encourage the submission of research notes (5000 words max.) for this special issue. Manuscripts should be submitted until August 1st, 2021. All documents are to be handed in via our official SPP ScholarOne online center: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/dgspp Pre-formatting to our publication style is not necessary. Final formatting is required only after acceptance. We offer classical and openaccess publication options.
