Course summary

Inequality affects individual and collective well-being, diminishes growth and productivity and undermines trust in key societal institutions.

It is particularly important in the contemporary political context, when years of austerity have amplified social divisions and fueled attacks against democratic and capitalist institutions.

The fact that the 85 richest people in the world have as many assets as the world’s poorest 3.5 billion people brings today’s social and economic divisions into stark relief. As such building an economy that works for all is crucial grand challenge facing most societies. Organizations, their structures, practices and strategies are central to this agenda, providing both potential barriers and solutions to inequality.

Inequality and social justice are long standing concerns in academic research and public policy. Our research focuses on the relationship between inequality as a broad multifaceted concept, and organisations, their structures, practices and strategies.
