- This paper aims to review some approaches in addressing inequality by considering the changes in the discourse of inequality with regard to development. It is examining income inequality as it becomes the main comcern in the beginning of the development theory. In the discussion of the pro-poor growth approaches, it recognize that despite income inequality, there were poverty and economic growth that need to be addressed in order to achieve development objectives. It is noticed in the inclusive growth approaches that income or wealth alone is not sufficient to explain the persistence of inequality for other aspects of welfare, therefore capability is believed as the appropriate instrument in achieving human well-beingness. As a case study, Indonesia has experienced inequality that is increasing during the last decades. The causes of inequality in Indonesia are complex and multi-dimensions. There is also a significant evidence of an increase in inequality of opportunity in Indonesia. Various indicators, such as education, health, and employment show a widening gap for people in Indonesia in accessing it. Therefore, stakeholders has to formulate proper policies to ensure a more prosperous and equal future for all Indonesians.
