The Center for the Study of Inequality (CSI) fosters basic and applied research on social and economic inequalities, as well as the processes by which such inequalities change and persist. As the structure of inequality continues to evolve in unpredictable ways, it becomes increasingly important to develop formal models of the sources and causes of inequality, thus moving beyond the conventional applied research that has dominated the field for decades.
