The rise of economic inequality in countries around the globe is causing societal and political concern. How individuals perceive and respond to inequalities and social policies varies between societies and social groups; yet its contextual causes are still underexplored. Drawing upon cross-national data, Simone Schneider will present an overview of her past and ongoing work on the public’s perception of inequality and justice, as well as institutional inequalities enshrined in social policy frameworks. In this context, she will introduce the PERGAP project which aims to advance knowledge on the societal causes leading to the (mis)perception of economic inequality by developing new instruments for the assessment and comparison of the institutional structure of welfare states and investigating their impact on perception and justification processes across different structural and cultural settings.
