We are very pleased to announce that on October 9 - 11, 2019, our Cluster of Excellence will hold its opening conference at the University of Konstanz, to kick off our work on "The Politics of Inequality".
On October 9, we will start the three-day event with a public lecture by Marcel Fratzscher (DIW Berlin), at the Konstanz Konzil building followed by a round table discussion and reception.
On October 10 - 11, we will meet in three thematic sessions at the University, oriented along the lines of the Cluster's three research areas: perception, participation, and policies. Each session will open with a keynote by a member of the Cluster's scientific advisory board.
