Inequality and Social Mobility
Inequality and social mobility are separate but related challenges. The former reflects an uneven access to resources, while the latter demonstrates the level of social justice, fairness, and equity in a society. While differences in socio-economic conditions are inevitable, social stratification have negative implications for social stability, well-being, and cohesion.
This research programme examines developments in this area, and considers measures to limit the negative trends.
