Beyond Europe 2020: Inequality, Skills, and Social Investment Workshop
October 7, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - October 8, 2022 @ 6:00 pm
This transatlantic workshop brings together scholars exploring patterns and drivers of income inequality in post-industrial societies. Broadly speaking, the papers follow two lines of investigation: What shapes people’s preferences with regard to social policy and party support; and what kinds of political conditions and policies result in more or less income inequality? Among the factors that shape preferences, the authors consider income and income expectations, risk perceptions, perceptions of institutional quality, and density of immigrants in the community. The authors who investigate the impact of politics and policies on inequality focus on economic liberalization, partisanship, taxation, labor market institutions, welfare states, state capacity, enfranchisement, and growth models. The unifying concern is to understand better the reasons for differences in inequality between countries and for changes in inequality over time.
