Research projects

On the origins of inequality: How important is risk exposure?

Konstantinos' work in Turkana pastoralist communities aims to understand whether risk exposure drives inequality in pre-modern societies. Studying communities that remain as close as possible to the human societies in which inequality first emerged allows us to contribute to a better understanding of the origins of inequality. With colleagues from the MRC/CSO SPHSU (University of Glasgow), Lancaster University, Erasmus University, and the NGO Friends of Lake Turkana, Kenya, they have collected data to investigate the importance of chance events, and of the human behaviour they give rise to, in explaining wealth inequality. Engagement with local communities, NGOs and policymakers has led to a Briefing Note and an educational booklet for use in local schools. This work has been supported by the Scottish Funding Council as part of GCRF.

Socioeconomic inequality and health risk: What do we learn from historical archives?

Konstantinos has been working to understand socioeconomic inequality in conjunction with health risk, exploiting historical information that allows us to evaluate longer-run implications of health risks such as disease outbreaks. This work includes projects on various aspects of inequality, health outcomes and relevant interventions, exploiting lessons from history for the present. These projects are in collaboration with colleagues from the MRC/CSO SPHSU (University of Glasgow), the Athens University of Economics and Business, Lancaster University, Université Sorbonne Paris Nord, and Glasgow City Archives. The projects have been supported by grant and PhD funding from the ESRC, College of Social Sciences and Erasmus+; this includes a grant funded by ESRC as part of UK Research and Innovation’s rapid response to COVID-19 with outputs including a Briefing Note on post-pandemic mortality dynamics and a Briefing Note on Medium run wealth inequality following COVID-19.
