Seminar on Social Exclusion and Inclusion


Examines group relations, inequalities, and cultural frames within and between European societies as well as the social construction of a broader European community. This seminar regularly sponsors research presentations by European and American social scientists working on questions of social integration and cohesion, social hierarchies, and conflicts. Recent seminar topics included immigrant integration policies, the French banlieues, convergence in social welfare policies, social resilience, and racialization in Europe.


On March 6, 2015, the Seminar on Social Exclusion and Inclusion co-sponsored an event with Thomas Piketty, author of "Capital in the Twenty-First Century" which stirred international debate on concentration of wealth and inequality. For more about this event, view the video.
