What Addressing Inequalities Means To Me

Our aim is to lead and facilitate social science research around addressing inequalities, in particular research that:

  • seeks to explore the structural and cultural barriers that create and sustain discrimination, vulnerability and deprivation, as well as strategies and interventions that aim to mitigate these
  • develops clusters of expertise across different disciplines to explore and examine intersections and the potential for new approaches to the study of inequalities
  • examines the short- and long-term impacts of collective action and interventions on the wellbeing of marginalised and at-risk groups and communities

In 2023, our core activities will focus on three of the UN Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Good health and wellbeing 
  • Quality Education
  • Gender Equality
