Economic Inequality in Eastern Europe
and Its Consequences for Social, Political and Economic Development
On their way from planned to market economies, Eastern European societies experienced a substantial growth of economic inequality. Today, some of the most unequal societies in the world are in Eastern Europe, with only a small fraction of the population controlling most of the assets. Economic inequality became one of the major political challenges Eastern European countries face, jeopardising their stability and social cohesion. The conference assembles experts from different fields (economics, sociology and political science), both from academia and from politics, who look at different aspects of inequality in Eastern Europe and its political, social and economic consequences. Topics covered by the conference include evolution of inequality in post-Socialism; inequality and education; inequality and gender; regional inequality; and inequality and political populism.
Die Tagung wird organisiert von Janis Kluge (Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik, Berlin), Alexander Libman (Freie Universität Berlin) und Olga Popova (Leibniz-Institut für Ost- und Südosteuropaforschung, Regensburg).
