Inequality and the top 10% in Europe

Inequality and the top 10% in Europe

 

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 23rd

11.00 AM

 @funalternativas

 

This event marks the launch of 4-country study on the financial position and attitudes towards inequality amongst the top 10% of income earners in four European countries: The UK, Spain, Sweden and Ireland. The countries were selected for the study because of their distinctive economies, welfare policies and experiences of the 2007/8 financial crash.

The study concentrates on the top 10%, excluding the extremely wealthy in the top 1%. Most inequality studies have concentrated on contrasting the top 1% with the other 99%. However, given the high participation in conventional politics and the strong political influence of the top 10%, it is vital to understand the economic position and perceptions on inequality held by, not just the top 1%, but the remaining segment of the top 10% if structural inequality is to be realistically addressed by policy makers.

The launch will consist of a keynote address by Prof Danny Dorling, Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography of the School of Geography and the Environment of the University of Oxford, followed by a presentation of the findings by Marcos Gonzalez Hernando, the research coordinator for the project, and responses by Irish and EU politicians.

Inequality and the top 10% in Europe is a collaboration by Arena Idé (Sweden), Compass (UK), Fundación Alternativas (Spain) and TASC, the Think Tank for Action on Social Change in Ireland, with the support of FEPS, the Foundation for Progressive Studies.
