The next SNIS Biennial Conference, hosted by the Center for International and Comparative Studies (ETHZ / University of Zürich), will take place on 28-29 January 2016 in Zürich (Audimax, ETH Zürich).
The conference will address the topic of political and economic inequalities, its concepts, causes and consequences. It will shed light on aspects that have so far been relatively neglected, namely the role of politics, social categories and the spatial context. The conference will look closer to three specific contexts within which inequality poses a major challenge: contexts of developed and developing countries, and within the European Union.
The keynote address will be delivered by Prof. Branko Milanovic, City University of New York.
