Lecture Series on Social Inequality
In 2011, the WZB hosted a public lecture series on key aspects of social inequality. Outstanding international scholars presented their latest research to shed light on an intensely debated topic. Speakers represented a broad range of sociological perspectives, and contributions covered diverse topics such as unemployment, health inequalities, subjective well-being, neighbourhood effects, immigration, elite reproduction, governance, parental social capital, and work-life balance, and their nexus with social inequality.
