4-6 FEBRUARY, 2015 - Antwerp (Belgium)


The third edition of the conference Equal is not Enough, entitled ‘Exploring novel theoretical and empirical approaches to the shaping of (in)equalities’ will take place in Antwerp (Belgium), 4, 5 & 6 February, 2015.

The conference seeks to contribute to the understanding of the causes, consequences and underlying dynamics of inequalities, as well as to the understanding of contemporary policies to combat them. In challenging differences and inequalities in contemporary societies, the conference addresses different grounds of inequality, such as gender, ethnicity, sexual preference, disability, class and age, and also focuses on the comparison and intersection that can be drawn between them. It does so in four different sections, paying particular attention to law, public policies, organisations and the life course as such: 

Key note lectures will be given by  Professor Sylvia Walby (Lancaster University), Professor Jeff Hearn (University of Huddersfield, Hanken School of Economics, and Orebro University), and Professor Dagmar Schiek (University of Leeds).
