About this event

This presentation will focus on several dimensions of economic and social inequalities that have arisen under the COVID-19 induced crisis. Using new data from bespoke surveys and secondary data collected since lockdown, it will document economic and education inequalities, and consider the implications for social mobility. It will also feature a policy discussion, organised particularly around education and the labour market, and including results from an information experiment regarding policy.

These seminars are held on Wednesdays in term time at 12:45-14:00

Seminars this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @CASE_LSE for updates.
