Workshop: "Economic Inequality and the Quality of Democracy," Feb. 7-8, 2014

How has rising economic inequality affected the distribution of political influence in advanced industrialized democracies?

Leading scholars of comparative political economy gather at UBC's Institute for European Studies to present and discuss their latest research on this topic.
