Inequality has become one of the biggest social, economic and political challenges of our time. Yet, policymakers remain reluctant to confront it head on. We therefore decided to make it the topic of our 5th InGRID winter school, to create a bridge between the state-of-the-art literature and political perceptions of this issue.
This winter school will bring together scholars, experts as well as policy makers and practitioners to analyse the most pressing issues within the concept of inequality in a cross-country comparative way as well as through country case studies.
Over 2½ days we will look at inequality from different angles and in relation to specific topics, such as:
a) intergenerational justice and welfare state,
c) corruption and politics
We will also look at relationship between social and spatial mobility, with a focus on Roma.
The final half day will provide the opportunity for researchers to present their work to allow on-the-spot discussions and networking.
