BIGSSS International Conference 2014 "(UN-)STABLE, (UN-)EQUAL & (UN-)PREDICTABLE: The Link between Social Stratification and the Welfare State" - Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences
This conference aims to identify the linkages between social stratification and mobility with social policy and welfare states. It looks for questions and answers that lie at the intersection of stratification and policy. For example: Does social policy enable or inhibit social mobility? Do welfare states change in response to increasing social inequality? How are individuals and countries responding to financial crises, austerity, and globalization? It brings together the stratification focus of the ECSR and the policy focus of ESPAnet into a common framework in order to broaden both associations' themes and illuminate the social inequality and political process nexus.
