INEQ - Helsinki Inequality Initiative
Life trajectories of wealth, health and well-being diverge. Multiculturalism and migration complicate civic life and solidarity. Neighborhoods become segregated. Digitalization and datafication open new opportunities but also intensify polarization. Making sense of social inequality is a constitutive task of social sciences and humanities. INEQ – Helsinki Inequality Initiative is a strategic, multidisciplinary research initiative of the University of Helsinki. This initiative brings together academics whose work enhances an in-depth understanding of causes and consequences of intersecting inequalities. INEQ is shaped by three interrelated themes: recognition, representation, responses.
