“Equal is not enough” Conference III

Supervisors: prof. dr. Petra Meier, prof. dr. Dimitri Mortelmans & prof. dr. Patrizia Zanoni

In the past, the Policy Research Centre on Equality Policies has successfully organised two “Equal is not enough” conferences towards the end of each five-year program, respectively in 2006 and 2010. The current proposal aims to carry on this tradition of organizing a major conference on equality issues.

With the conference, we aim to generate a platform to bring together scholars and practitioners from different disciplines and fields, all of them working on equality issues and the policies related to them, in order to stimulate innovations in understanding the causes, consequences, and underlying dynamics of inequalities, as well as in the approaches to contemporary policies meant to tackle them.

The third edition of the conference, “Equal is not enough: Exploring novel theoretical and empirical approaches to study the shaping of (in)equalities” will take place on February 4–6, 2015.
