Social and economic inequality are pervasive features of modern societies. This is remarkable as most individuals, in most places, express preferences for more egalitarian societies and relationships. This seminar addresses a range of sociological, economic, and psychological literature to understand the ways in which individuals evaluate and react to inequalities. We will start by looking at general (global) inequality developments. Thereafter we will look at the ways in which individuals make judgements and decisions (i.e. using heuristics). Finally, we will look at how individuals evaluate and react to inequalities and how these evaluations can be understood with the knowledge we aquired on judgement and decision making.



The seminar will take place online via zoom. We will meet bi-weekly from 10am to 2pm at the following dates: 03.11.20 (10am-12pm), 17.11.20, 01.12.2020, 15.12.2020, 12.01.2021, 26.01.2021, 09.02.2021.

The seminar starts on November 3, 2020. The course language is English. If all course participants speak fluent German, we can do some parts in German.
