While economic inequalities are gaining increasing attention amongst academics, journalists and policy-makers, especially following the publication of Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the 21st Century, the focus of the new Queries shows that inequalities go much further than just economic inequality or income inequality.

The think tank of the Social Democrats at European level, the Foundation of European progressive Studies will take the opportunity of the PES congress to introduce its work on the topic of societal inequalities through this debate and also the latest issue of Queries magazine, which will also have a stand at the PES congress.

Panel discussion:

Frances Stewart, Professor Emeritus of development economics, Oxford Development Studies, internationally-renowned scholar for the concept of Horizontal Inequalities

Ozlem Onaran, Professor of Workforce and Economic Development Policy, University of Greenwich, currently co-researcher of a FEPS joint project on wage-led growth in EU

Renato Miguel do Carmo, Research fellow at Instituo Universitário of Lisbon, Member of the European Inequality watch network through the Observatório das Desigualdades

Diane Perrons, Professor of Economic Geography and Gender Studies and Director, London School of Economy, her research focus is on globalisation, gender and inequality
