 The next meeting of the LACEA/IDB/WB/UNDP Network on Inequality and Poverty (NIP) will be held at GRADE in the City of Lima on October 31st, 2012. The NIP is an initiative that aims to advance the state of knowledge and expertise regarding the causes and consequences of poverty, inequality, and social exclusion, as well as on the whole range of policies, institutions, and social structures that influence their dynamics.

Complete papers or advanced drafts in Word or PDF format should be sent to: nip@cedlas.org by September 15, 2012. Strict compliance with this deadline is required.

Papers will be selected on the basis of academic merit. Submitted papers will be reviewed by a program committee made of members of the Executive Committee of the Network. Authors of the selected papers will be notified by e-mail. Every accepted paper will be included in the program and will have a discussant. We expect to communicate our decisions by September 24, 2012.
