In Equality



In 2015, the European Forum Alpbach takes on the question of “InEquality”. Public discourse goes back and forth between the two positions: the negative outlook describes inequality as a deficiency hampering opportunities and reducing resources, whereas the positive interpretation considers it a driver for change and diversity.

“InEquality” is highly controversial – that’s why hundreds of participants from different backgrounds will gather in Alpbach next summer to explore and discuss the many facets of “InEquality”. Exploring the causes, understanding the repercussions and future developments in respect to “InEquality” will take centre stage. What positive or negative impact does inequality bring about? Which fields are more and which are less affected? Who profits and who ends up with fewer opportunities? What instruments can help lessen social inequality? Does “InEquality” harm the economy, or is it one of the economy’s main drivers? How much inequality does Europe need today?

Come join the best minds on an exciting journey to find answers to some of the most pressing issues on the topic of “InEquality”. Pioneers and leaders in the field will engage in exciting debates. Learn first-hand about current issues and the latest analyses. We invite you to come to Alpbach and get involved actively!
