This course overviews contemporary research on gender, ethnic and racial inequality, with special attention to labour market inequalities. We discuss the distinction between observed “gaps” and “discrimination” and show not all gaps reflect discriminatory behaviour. We then focus on the study of discrimination proper, with special attention to both theory and methods. The course also includes two sessions designed and run entirely by students (i.e. discrimination by sexual orientation, and bilingualism and attainment). Results of the work carried out at the Discrimination & Inequality Lab, including work in progress, will be presented and discussed.
