Open Call for Applications

Haus der Wissenschaften,
Sandstraße 4/5, 28195 Bremen
Event type: public

The conference on Intergenerational Inequalities and the Contemporary Family Setup aims to build knowledge on the causes and consequences of intergenerational inequalities, focusing on the individual and societal factors along with the interactions between them. In addition, life course changes, especially values and norms, play an important role for young people and their families. Changing life courses, such as migration, play a role in the life of every individual, but also have an impact on social cohesion and the welfare state. Moreover the conference seeks to answer questions on what challenges these inequalities pose for modern families as well as the family members, contributing to the debate around how family structures and peoples’ views about them have changed in recent decades. 

The conference sessions will take place at Haus der Wissenschaft, Bremen (Germany) from November 21 to 22, 2022. It is organized by a team of seven researchers of the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS) and the Inequality and Social Policy Research Centre (SOCIUM) at the University of Bremen.
