About the ‘Inequality and…?’ lecture series
PEARL Chairs Proffessors Louis Chauvel and Conchita D’Ambrosio have established the lecture series in collaboration with the Chambre des Salariés, CREA, the Economists Club of Luxembourg, the European Investment Bank Institute (EIB Institute), the European Commission, LIS, LISER, STATEC and the FNR (through it’s RESCOM programme).
The unifying thread of the lectures is the concept of inequality, that is, differences in the distribution of some attributes, such as income and wealth, among the population. Each lecture tackles the links between these differences and a central social phenomenon. Each lecture is a source of inspiration for an audience with different levels of expertise, ranging from a general educational level through BAs in social sciences to accomplished researchers.
