The EELC theme pertains to issues relating to the unequal accumulation of human capital and its economic and wellbeing effects both within and across cohorts; equitable access to crucial resources such as food, health care, education, the digital environment, and social safety; and the distributional consequences of development trends and transformative policies, especially for vulnerable populations (just transitions). As a hallmark, research on EELC themes will trace out the impact on the distribution of wellbeing of micro- and macroeconomic feedback loops, for instance, through endogenous adjustments in human capital investments or structural change within the economy.
