Structural Inequalities

CPS Home > Research > Structural Inequalities

In the Policy arena, gender, health, nutrition, and age, among others, are serious categories of analysis, but are usually conspicuous either by their absence or the paying of mere lip service. For instance, gender and age data: (i) are either not collected, or (ii) are unavailable where collected in a user friendly manner, or (iii) remain usually un-analyzed where collected and made available or (iv) are not heeded to when analysed. The context of a changing welfare state, with greater reliance on private providers, economic growth in some sections of the country and increased precarity in others, requires much closer analysis. The research on structural inequalities will therefore involve an understanding of these and other issues at the level of policy formation, implementation and evaluation in conversation with other disciplines such as sociology, history, psychology, engineering, and environmental science.
