***Conference Announcement***

Addressing Ethnic Inequalities in Social Mobility, 13 – 15 November 2013

in partnership with the Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity, a residential conference at Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park

Along with an analysis of the concept of ‘social mobility’ across generations and across the individual life-course, the conference will converge around key influences on mobility such as: education; employment; gender; class; family structure. Other sessions will cut across these categories by looking at, for example, regional differences or political discourses around ‘social mobility’.
