Social Inequalities in Europe – On the Rise Again? ECSR 2014 Conference

Call for Papers: ECSR 2014 Conference, Berlin, September 23-25, 2014

Submission deadline: March 31,  2014

Call for papers

ECSR invites researchers to submit abstracts related to issues of social inequality in Europe for the 2014 ECSR conference. The conference will be held in Berlin (Germany) from September 23–25, 2014 and is jointly organized by the WZB – Berlin Social Science Center and Humboldt University Berlin (HUB). The conference will start on September 23, 2014 at 3pm with two keynotes preceding the conference party in the evening; the official program will end on September 25, 2014 at 5 pm.
The conference seeks to assemble research on the impact of the recent financial crisis on social inequalities and cohesion. Until recently, social inequalities had been declining continuously. However, the current economic climate and major demographic changes in Europe threaten to trigger an increase in existing social inequalities and prompt the emergence of new forms of social inequality. What kinds of welfare states and social policies will still be able to effectively keep inequalities low or at least prevent a resurgence of social inequality? Presentations closely linked to the conference theme are most welcome, but we also encourage submission of abstracts that address social inequality more generally.
More information on the conference – including the application details for up to 30 travel grants of up to 500 Euro for PhD students – soon available.
