Welcome to the In_equality Conference 2024, where we aim to build on the success of our previous conference in 2022 at the stunning Lake Constance. As an international and interdisciplinary gathering, we are excited to meet new speakers and participants and to reconnect with familiar faces to foster insightful discussions. In today’s rapidly changing world, concerns about growing inequalities dominate academic and public debates. Factors such as rapid technological advancements, globalization, climate change, the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the consequences of the war in Ukraine have heightened these concerns. We invite contributions from all areas of inequality research. Our three-day program will feature 18 interdisciplinary panels covering various topics from gender, ethnicity, wealth, and educational inequality to language, questions concerning the welfare state, debt, and austerity. We will explore which inequalities are perceived as problematic and discuss the role of governments in addressing them. In addition, we will examine how perceptions of inequality influence patterns of political participation and the extent to which policies impact structural inequalities. In our commitment to environmental sustainability, we have decided to organize a climate-neutral conference. Furthermore, we will be live streaming all panels and discussions to ensure a hybrid conference experience. This reduces carbon emissions and widens the opportunity for those who face long-distance journeys to participate. Join us at the In_equality Conference 2024 and participate in global inequality research.
