The James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality [at the CUNY Graduate Center] was launched on September 1, 2016. It renamed and expanded the Graduate Center’s Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) Center, which opened its doors at the Graduate Center in 2009. The mission of the Stone Center is to build and disseminate knowledge related to the causes, nature, and consequences of multiple forms of socio-economic inequality. Although the Stone Center’s associated faculty and students have diverse interests and utilize a range of methods, they share a commitment to scholarship that is quantitative, data-driven, interdisciplinary, and policy-oriented, and that addresses questions that are cross-nationally comparative and/or global in scope.
Income and wealth inequality is recognised as one of the most critical issues of our day, yet its dynamics, causes and consequences are not fully understood. The James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Centre for the Study of Wealth Inequality [at INSEAD] was founded in 2017 to address this need and serve as the leading venue for the research and teaching of income and wealth inequality issues. By convening an interdisciplinary team of scholars from across INSEAD, the Centre aims to generate new insights about inequality problems and harness the power of business to solve them. It connects the lab with the classroom to ignite new ideas; spur discourse and debate; shape business education; and inspire leaders to take action. Our mission is two-fold: We’re committed to generating new insights about income and wealth inequality problems, and focused on mobilising the next generation of business leaders to solve them.

The Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy, home to the Inequality program, is the Harvard Kennedy School’s center for the advancement of ideas, research, and policy to confront social problems that are among the nation's most urgent domestic policy challenges. In 2016, support from the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation launched the first cohort of eight Stone PhD Scholars in Inequality and Wealth Concentration, giving new momentum to Harvard University efforts to cultivate the very best emerging scholarship on issues of inequality and wealth concentration.
