Work and Social Cohesion

Inequality and social mobility

We analyze the impact of the changing world of work on the distributions of wages, income, and wealth. We also examine consequences for social mobility and uncover pathways to greater equality to foster social cohesion. This area studies mechanisms of social mobility and the consequences of existing inequalities. It assesses interventions that aim at equal opportunity and access to the labor market, or at counteracting the polarization of the workforce.
