Abstract: As part of a larger research programme undertaking the development of a global index of wellbeing (GLOWING) through the exploration of population wellbeing in low to middle income countries (LMICs), this paper examines the role of inequality in shaping experiences of wellbeing. The paper explores various conceptualizations of wellbeing and inequality and outlines an integrated framework for understanding the importance of measuring the wellbeing of places. We conclude by urging geographers to explicitly engage with theory and cross-disciplinary research in order to adequately conceptualize the role of place in ‘Beyond GDP’ and progress measures.
