Three institutes in LSE are hosting a new seminar series: the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment (GRI), the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) and the new International Inequalities Institute (III). It will be chaired by Prof Ian Gough, Visiting Professor at CASE and Associate at Grantham.
The overlap between
environmental pressures and degradation on the one hand and the ‘social
dimension’ of inequality and human wellbeing on the other hand is of immense
importance but under-researched. There is a yawning gap to be filled by a
coherent, exciting and interdisciplinary research agenda. This series of
seminars will explore and develop that agenda.
The first six seminars of the series will take place onThursday 3rd November 2016, 12.00-13.30 with Prof Ian Gough on ‘Climate change, Inequality and Social Policy’. Registration is required. Sign up for this seminar.
The analysis suggests that the economic divergence between London and the Northern regions in England continues to grow. The gaps are also growing in relation to a number of social outcomes, such as education and health, with improvement in these outcomes in London being in line with economic conditions in the capital bouncing back to pre-recession levels or beyond while the North lags behind. But economic growth in London has not resulted in reduced poverty or inequality. The full paper is available here: Pulling in the Same Direction? Economic and Social Outcomes in London and the North of England Since the Recession, by Polina Obolenskaya, Ruth Lupton and Bert Provan.
