Research Institute Economics of InequalityRSS
Since 2015 we address key questions of social, economic and ecological inequalities and the resulting issues for the society, politics, the environment and every single human being. Due to the increase of inequalities in the course of time it is from our perspective of utmost importance to look into these topics from various angles.
The research institute "Economics of Inequality" serves as a platform for interdisciplinary research on these inequalities and for discussions with students, other researchers and the public. In the course of our research we question reasons for the existance of inequalities as well as their effects. To offer profound results of our research, it is a major concern for us to develop concrete approaches for measuring inequalities. Furthermore, our research results should not only point out already existing inequalities, but rather provide a scientific foundation for the development of measures and actions to reduce present social and economic inequalities.
