VSO – Visies op sociale ongelijkheid

VSO – Visies op sociale ongelijkheid – Perspectives on social inequality. This is a course I teach in the Bachelor’s programme of ISS. In this course, students learn about the answers of different social thinkers to the problem of inequality. Theories from economy, sociology, political sciences and psychology are discussed and modern empirical research is presented. Is there a theory that holds best? Or contribute all explanations equally to the understanding of the problem of social inequality? Last but not least, when is inequality actually also inequity and would be a solution to this problem?
