Britain: a country divided?

LSE Works: Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion

With 'fairness' and 'equality of opportunity' at the heart of the aspirations of the coalition
government, what does their starting point look like and how should inequality be evaluated? In this lecture John Hills and Polly Vizard will present findings from the analysis of economic inequalities carried out by the National Equality Panel.

John Hills is director of CASE and professor of social policy at LSE. Polly Vizard is a research fellow at CASE.

Professor Tony Atkinson is centennial professor in the Department of Economics at LSE.

David Darton is Director of Foresight at the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

LSE Works is a new series of public lectures, sponsored by SAGE publications, that will showcase some of the latest research by LSE's Research Centres. In each
session, LSE academics will present key research findings, demonstrating where appropriate the implications of their studies for public policy. The previous LSE works lecture was Best Ideas: can fund managers beat the market? and the next lecture in the series is The Low-Carbon Industrial Revolution.
