In Europe we know that Portugal, France and Italy are the most unequal countries according to OECD household incomes. In addition to income inequality, inequality of opportunities may result from different types of discrimination, including discrimination based on gender, ethnicity, or religion. Widespread inequalities lead to the exclusion of minorities. Despite the fact that ethnic, cultural and religious diversity is a central feature and value of the European Union minority exclusion still persists in the EU.
The Thinking Lab on Social Cohesion is engaged with one of the main factors of discontent within the European Union: the increase of social inequality and its consequences both on national cohesion and intra-European solidarity. This Thinking Lab is ambitious to identify both current critical developments and appropriate solutions to the crisis. The Lab looks into policy arrangements on the national scale and incorporates international interdependencies.
