CRISE In Brief 3. Monitoring and measuring horizontal inequalities.
The existence of major horizontal inequalities (HIs) worsens societal well-being and significantly heightens the risk of violent conflict. It is important, therefore, that measures to reduce HIs are adopted in any multiethnic society where they are severe. Consequently, it is essential to know the magnitude of HIs, in which dimensions they are particularly high, and to be able to track them over time in order to monitor policy impacts. This policy brief thus provides guidance on monitoring and measuring HIs.
