This course overviews contemporary research on ethnic and racial inequality, with special attention to labour market inequalities produced by discriminatory processes. We discuss the distinction between observed “gaps” and “discrimination” and show not all gaps (i.e. observed differences between groups) reflect discriminatory behaviour. We then focus on the study of ethno-racial discrimination proper, with special attention to both theory and methods. Results of the work carried out at the Discrimination & Inequality Lab, including work in progress, will be presented and discussed. Students are also expected to present their work in progress.
Status: open in 2021
IMPORTANT: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the course moves online. Links to online sessions will be provided by e-mail. Stay tuned, stay safe!
