We are witnessing increasing divisions in society whereby health gains for some are not shared by others; where social mobility is falling; and where the pay gap between ordinary workers and corporate leaders has grown exponentially. Inequality is now a mainstream political issue. What does current research bring to our understanding of how inequality shapes our economy and society? What do the public think about inequality? Can research provide evidence of interventions to reduce inequalities?

This one-day seminar provides an opportunity for cross-disciplinary conversations about research and policy interventions on inequality. We will learn about the different types of inequality and explore measures to guide policy makers from current academic research as well as explore connections between different approaches, methods and measures of inequality with a view to building future collaborations.
