Social divisions, stratification, inequalities and socio-cultural change

In this research cluster we investigate divisions and inequalities within societies.

We research inequalities in class, health, ethnicity, sexuality, religion, gender, later life and the workplace. How does being working class, in poor health, or belonging to an ethnic minority, being a migrant, or being older affect your position in society, and why? Why do these inequalities continue even when society as a whole is getting richer? And what happens if you belong to more than one of these categories?
