Inequality as a Multidimensional Process

CIFAR, in partnership with the American Academy and the Weatherhead Center, will hold a lunch time launch event on November 1, 2019 to celebrate the release of the Summer 2019 Daedalus Issue, Inequality as a Multidimensional Process – a collective volume by CIFAR’s Successful Societies program.

This issue, edited by Michèle Lamont (Harvard University) and Paul Pierson (University of California, Berkeley), explores the cultural and social frameworks that can put societies on a path toward greater and more equitable prosperity in the face of increasingly persistent inequality. Through an intimate and interactive panel discussion moderated by Jennifer Hochschild, the launch event will explore key insights for why many forms of social inequalities appear so intractable and self-reinforcing, and their implications on current and emerging policies.
