Inequality working group

Welcome to the webpage of the Inequality Working Group (IWG), hosted at the European University Institute (EUI), Department of Political and Social Sciences.

The mission of the working group is to facilitate the exchange of research among EUI researchers and professors on various aspects of social inequality, and, to the extent possible, to push this discussion beyond the boundaries of the EUI research community by attracting external speakers and audiences.

IWG is convened by Professors Fabrizio Bernardi and Juho Härkönen.

Please contact the coordinators ([email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
[email protected]) if you have any questions, or want to be added to the IWG mailing list.

Inequality Round Table


The Inequality Round Table is an opportunity for researchers and postdocs to get to know each other and discuss work in progress in an informal setting. Researchers/postdocs in need of peer feedback are invited to submit something written (the draft of a theoretical background, a long abstract for a potential article, a mindmap of your prospectus…) at least 8 days before the following meeting. Each piece selected will be assigned a discussant and circulated among all participants before the meeting. Preparing a very short presentation is recommended, but not mandatory. For more information, expressions of interest, and submissions, please write to [email protected], [email protected], or [email protected].  

Reading Sessions


The Reading Sessions of the Inequality Working Group aim at discussing the most recent seminal books in the fields of social and economic inequality. 

One book at a time will be discussed during each of the meetings, starting with a short summary of the selected book (by a different volunteer each time) and followed by key discussion points and an informal discussion of the reading.

Each meeting will last for one hour during lunch and will take place every 6 to 8 weeks.

Please contact 
[email protected] if you have any suggestions for the upcoming sessions, or if you want to volunteer to summarise any of the books.
