Class, Gender, and Social Inequalities

This research cluster explores the changing nature of social inequalities in relation to class, gender, race and ethnicity, age, and other social divisions that structure contemporary human life in a global context and within East and Southeast Asia. It brings together a variety of fields such as work and labour market, education, health, marriage and family, religion, migration and many more, and provides a platform for sociologists/anthropologists to present cutting-edge research using quantitative and qualitative methods.
