Working group


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.

From September 2022 the main co-ordinator of this working group is Prof. Herman van de Werfhorst.

This group operates within the set of activities of the Comparative Life Course and Inequality Research Centre (CLIC). Please click on the "Visit project website" to read more about the CLIC project.
