Conference explores 'Social Dimensions of Inequality,' May 20-21

A conference on "The Social Dimensions of Inequality" is set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday, May 20-21, in 16 Robertson Hall.

The event is sponsored by the Russell Sage Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation in conjunction with the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. It will bring together scholars from Princeton and several other leading institutions who have been part of a special project on the social dimensions of inequality and their relationship to the recent rise in economic inequality in the United States.

This new research initiative examines social inequality on a number of dimensions, including family well-being, educational opportunity, health care and coverage, legal services and criminal justice, political participation and representation, banking and credit, housing, pension provision, environmental quality and even access to computers and the Internet. The conference program is available online.
