Description

Within the framework of the INGRID project, the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) is organizing a winter school on Intergenerational Inequalities that will be held in Brussels from 3-5 November 2014. This winter school aims to create a bridge between the state-of-the-art research and political perceptions of inequality. Therefore it will bring together scholars, experts as well as policy makers and practitioners  to analyse the most pressing issues within the concept of inequality in a cross-country comparative way as well as through country case studies.

During the program participants will look at inequality from different angles and in relation to specific topics, such as: corruption and politics, finance, education, intergenerational justice and welfare state. The last day researchers will have the opportunity to present their work.
