During the CLIC introductory meeting, Professors Fabrizio Bernardi and Juho Härkönen introduced the research centre and the working group, welcoming its four new PhD researchers and five new Max Weber Fellows and visiting researchers.
The Inequality Working Group (IWG) is part of the Comparative Life Course and Inequality Research Centre (CLIC), which studies changes of life courses and their consequences on social inequality in modern societies. 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, push the 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 and co-organised by Gaia Ghirardi, Claudia Brunori, Lotta Lintunen and Alessandro Ferrara.
IWG additionally organised a mock session in the beginning of October for the numerous EUI colleagues that presented their research at the ECSR Annual Conference 2021, on 7 and 8 October. These pre-conference sessions have become a frequent part of the working group’s activities and provide a comfortable environment to practice presentation and commenting skills.
The CLIC-IWG first term programme is now available.
