The Inequality and Policy Research Center (IPRC) is an initiative of the Institute for Democratic Renewal. IPRC supports the scientific analysis of political, health, socioeconomic, and group-specific inequality in the United States and abroad. We develop evidence-based policy and program solutions to problems related to inequality.

About the IPRC

Inequality is arguably the most transdisciplinary, socially-oriented, and eye-opening problem in the United States and worldwide. Because it deals with a great variety of data sources, theoretical frameworks, and methodologies, inequality represents a vertex where research agendas unify and generate collaborative academic and institutional networks. Yet, even though topics within the realm of inequality can enhance every aspect of the educational process, CGU does not currently have a research-driven institution dedicated to the study of inequality. We are, therefore, proposing the establishment of the Claremont’s Inequality and Policy Research Center (IPRC) —a useful platform to encourage the exchange of ideas, attract students, generate resources, and enrich CGU’s overall academic environment.

Mission

The IPRC has five main objectives:

  1. To support the scientific analysis of political, health, socioeconomic, and group-specific (e.g., gender, racial, ethnic) inequality in the US and abroad.
  2. To develop evidence-based policy and program solutions to problems that originate from, or are related to, inequality.
  3. To disseminate the research, data, and policy recommendations resulting from IPRC’s activities.
  4. To train and support undergraduate and graduate students on their research and generate cross-disciplinary collaborations between faculty members and institutions.
  5. Become a scientific platform for the promotion and generation of human, economic, and institutional resources to be invested in social justice and equity.

 

Inequality Lab

Inequality Lab is a biweekly meeting of faculty and graduate students. The Lab is a space for research conversation, presentations of current research, and trainings on topics related to inequality and research methodology.
