International Workshop on Innovation and Inequality
The concept of inequality is difficult to capture as it is intrinsically linked to: political freedom, quality of life, personal characteristics. The concept of inequality is therefore multidimensional and interdisciplinary in nature, as it encompasses different domains. This brings into the picture elements such as education, employment, health. But more in general participation to civil society, which has also to do, not only with concepts such as employment, but, for instance, uncertainty and security of employment, of health, of education, of justice.
