Why Social Inequalities Persist

Prof Danny Dorling, Sheffield University

Wednesday 27 January 2010, 1930-2030
Biology Large Lecture Theatre

Few say they agree with injustice, but we live in an unjust world. This talk presents the argument that In rich countries injustice as represented by social inequalities is caused less and less by having too few resources to share around fairly, but is increasingly maintained by widespread adherence to beliefs which actually propagate it.

Danny Dorling is Professor of Human Geography at the University of Sheffield. His recent work has been concerned with inequalities in education, income, race, housing and health.
