The Section on Inequality, Poverty and Mobility

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Section on Inequality, Poverty, and Mobility is to foster research and disseminate knowledge on the distribution of material and nonmaterial resources, and the economic, social, and cultural forces that generate and perpetuate unequal distributions of these resources. The Section welcomes members of all theoretical and methodological persuasions and embraces work that considers inequalities in all institutions and social contexts.
