Inequality, Education and Social Power – Conference discussions and lectures
Is education really the key to adjust social inequality? In what way do gender and social background define access to education? What consequences does institutionalized inequality in the education system have on actors’ social and political participation?
In November 2014, the conference “Inequality, Education and Social Power” took place in Berlin and was convened by the Forum Transregionale Studien and the Max Weber Foundation Transnational Research Group “Poverty and Education in Modern India” (German Historical Institute London), the Georg August University Göttingen, and the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB).
Scholars from India, France, Argentina, Mexico, and South Africa, among others, brought together research on inequality, education, and social power from various disciplinary perspectives as well as from various countries of different world regions.
