Launch of the Multidimensional Inequality Framework

Today we are delighted to inform you that we have launched the Multidimensional Inequality Framework (MIF). The MIF and dedicated websites are the results of a collaboration between academics in the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) at the London School of Economics and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) (Abigail McKnight as the academic lead), and practitioners in Oxfam (led by Alex Prats).
The initial project was funded through grant from the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity (AFSEE) programme at the LSE's International Inequalities Institute and further funding for the development of the CASE website was provided by the LSE's Knowledge Exchange and Impact Fund.


For too long inequality has been conceptualised and measured within single dimensions. This has limited our understanding of inequality and restricted our ability to tackle it. The Multidimensional Inequality Framework provides a systematic, theoretically grounded approach to measuring and analysing inequality. Amartya Sen's capability approach, informs the theoretical foundation of the MIF, and leads us to look beyond simple measures of economic outcomes or subjective assessments of well-being to assess the quality of people's lives. Instead, we assess inequalities in the capability of individuals to live a life they have reason to value and one that they would choose for themselves. The MIF is structured around seven key life domains, within which we provide a selection of inequality indicators and inequality measures.

The dedicated website contains a toolkit with advice on how to apply the MIF, lots of resources to help you identify inequality drivers, candidate policies and how to take action.
