In its mission to facilitate creative multidisciplinary scholarship and debate about today’s pressing issues, the Pufendorf Institute invites you to join a semester-long conversation on inequity. Participants in “After the crisis,” a research programme on global political economy of the future supported by the Institute in 2010-11, identified inequity as one of the most formidable challenges of today’s world, recommending further consideration of its diverse forms, manifestations and consequences.
The spring 2012 series brings together scholars who document and analyze serious—and in many cases increasing—inequities within and among nations, and explore ways in which they play out in socio-cultural institutions such as markets; urban geographies; systems of race, gender and sexuality; and colonial/post-colonial relations and resistance. Special attention will highlight visions and actions emerging in various world contexts in attempts to respond to, transform or transcend these troubling realities.
