The new programme is out! Find more information on the individual lectures here.

The new In_equality magazine is here: (In)equality of Opportunities

It's about social mobility, meritocracy, the promise of advancement and educational inequality. For example: The German school sorting system – how fair do children and parents think school recommendations are?

The entire magazine is available as an e-reader - or get a print copy at the University of Konstanz.
