Monday, 11 July 2016: 09:00-10:30
Location: Hörsaal 34 (Main Building)
RC07 Futures Research (host committee)

Language: English

This session is focused on the debate about social stratification, income, consumption and class structure, with special attention to emerging economies. In this sense, our aim is to discuss the paths and trends that can shape the future of a world facing geopolitics and geoeconomics transformations. The key question is: To what extent can the changes in the last decades point in the direction of a global scenario in which societies can become more inclusive and less unequal?
