Being deeply rooted in society, the topic of inequality raises empirical and normative questions for a number of disciplines, such as sociology, economics, history and laws.
We talk about both individual perceptions of inequality and systems/policies in place to tackle those, as well as processes and tensions that exist within the society regarding inequality.
What is the role of globalization on the economic growth and the distribution of resources between various social groups and how can we tackle it? How did the concept of inequality change over time and how can we explain its presence historically?
The Covid-19 pandemic has made the topic of inequality even more urgent than ever with no equal access to health care and no equal distribution of vaccinations for example. However, what about the social and economic implications to the topic of inequality post pandemic? Is this paradigm shift an opportunity to establish more equality worldwide, or does this shift actually lead to an even bigger inequality gap?
