About the organizers

All things being equal, Konstanz wouldn’t be the first place to go… but things aren’t equal!

Join us for In_equality Conference 2022

Cluster of Excellence – The Politics of Inequality

The gap separating the poor from the rich, the worldwide rise of populism, the division of burdens in the fight against climate change, unfairly distributed access to education – many current debates are as much about inequality as anything. These topics pose highly complex questions, yet scientifically grounded answers are still few and far between. This is where we come in to investigate “The Politics of Inequality”: the political causes and consequences of inequality.
