Since its emergence around the turn of the century the concept of inclusive growth has been substantially debated by researchers and practitioners, has increasingly gained space in domestic and international political circles, has inspired the design of and generated projects and policies, and has impacted the views and the lives of many people. While the conceptual debate and the practical application of various definitions of inclusive growth have taken place simultaneously, they have recently been joined by incipient attempts to measure inclusive growth. With convergence towards a consensual definition of inclusive growth still nowhere in sight, these attempts are not just empirical analyses but fundamentally exploratory exercises in defining the meaning of inclusive growth.
