AEA resources on race in the economics profession

Journal articles on racial disparities

The following links present lists of articles relating to race and racial disparities, which have been published in top economics journals over the last ten years or so. The editors of these journals volunteered to take inventories of their journals' publications on race in June 2020 to supplement the AEA's reading list on the history of race and racism. (Each editor used slightly different criteria in developing their list of relevant papers.)
