Centre for Poverty and Inequality Research

The Centre for Poverty and Inequality Research conducts research into all aspects of inequality and poverty – their meaning and measurement, causes and consequences, in both developing and developed countries.

Building on the rich history of the former Poverty Research Unit at Sussex (PRUS), CPIR brings together researchers across the University of Sussex, and aims to create partnerships with governments, international organisations, other academic institutions and NGOs.

CPIR draws on the interdisciplinary approach and values that Sussex embodies to generate impact through world-class research.
