March 7th, 2018

On February 28, 2018, the CEQ Institute at Tulane University and the World Bank signed a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate on common objectives. The forms of collaboration include data-sharing, re-estimates of studies applying new international poverty lines, advising and training, and knowledge sharing. The data-sharing component will significantly increase the country coverage in the CEQ Institute‘€™s Data Center on Fiscal Redistribution. Through the assessment of the impact of taxation and social spending on inequality and poverty, the CEQ Institute aims to provide a roadmap for governments, multilateral institutions, and non-governmental organizations in their efforts to build more equitable societies.
