Dynamics of Inequality Across the Lifecourse: structures and processes

Basic Information

The DIAL programme (2016-2021) has three major objectives: • To advance globally excellent theoretical and methodological research on dynamics of inequality across the life-course which may be multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary and comparative, and which builds synergistically on a pan-European basis; • To motivate and support excellence and capacity building for research on dynamics of inequality across the life-course on a cross-national basis throughout the NORFACE countries; • To develop understanding and promote research-based knowledge and insight into dynamics of inequality across the life-course for issues of societal, practical and policy relevance, with theoretical foundations but worked on jointly with relevant users and experts.

Aim of the joint call Existing and rising inequalities pose fundamental challenges to European societies and economies. The increasing gap between rich and poor, exacerbated by the recent financial and economic crises, is a key concern. The NORFACE transnational research programme on “Dynamics of Inequality Across the Life-course: structures and processes” focuses on the complex and highly intertwined sources of inequalities in contemporary societies, and their consequences.
