Understanding what causes inequality is all the more important in a world in which access to learning and employment has been reshaped by the pandemic restrictions. This webinar presents new thinking on the drivers of social inequality and shows how focusing on only one aspect of inequality such as social class gives an incomplete view of the intersecting disadvantages shaping the lives of individuals, families and communities.
Not all young people from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds end up with poor educational and labour market outcomes. What factors contribute to their success in the face of adversity? This webinar will focus on the protective and enabling factors, which lead some young people to break the vicious circle of the social reproduction of inequalities.
Understanding Inequalities Co-Director Professor Cristina Iannelli will chair this lecture, 'The researcher and the researched - an ever-changing relationship’ - hosted by SRA Scotland, to mark their 40th Anniversary.
