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 María Del Mar Cañizares Espadafor or Risto Conte Keivabu if you have any questions, or want to be added to the IWG mailing list.

Inequality Working Group 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 María Del Mar Cañizares Espadafor or Risto Conte Keivabu if you have any suggestions for the upcoming sessions, or if you want to volunteer to summarise any of the books.
