Over 96 million people are at risk of poverty and social exclusion in the European Union, 22% of the EU's population. Analizing social inequality, from disciplines as varied as law, political science, history or economics is one of the goals of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence EUqualis, hosted at the Institut d'études europeénnes of the Université libre de Bruxelles.
We discuss with professors Amandine Crespy, political scientist, and Chloé Brière, jurist, about new forms of inequality related, for instance, to environmental issues and about emerging discussions of how intersectionality plays a key role when analyzing inequalities.
Making sense of EU is created and produced by the Institut d’études européennes of the Université libre de Bruxelles. This series on Inequality and the European Union is sponsored by the IE-ULB's Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence EUqualis and it’s cofunded by the ERasmus + programme of the European Union.
