Seven of the world’s 10 most unequal countries are located in Africa – this while the continent’s population is bound to take a rapidly rising share of the world’s population in the next 30 years. Understanding Africa’s inequality dynamics is a key component of the international inequality puzzle.
The establishment of ACEIR directly addresses the analytical, empirical and data needs that are required for policy interventions and civil society action to turn the tide against inequality.
ACEIR partner universities are located in western, eastern and southern Africa.
Established in 2018, ACEIR is one of the 13 centres of excellence of the African Research Universities Alliance.
