About the event
Newspaper headlines tell us that the richest get exponentially richer and more and more people to fall back into poverty as a result of economic tensions. Poverty and inequality seem to be an integral part of society.
But why is that? Can we justify inequality and if so, how?
Do you think that it's fair that some have millions of dollars and some others are starving? Regardless, you will not be sorry to join our insightful guest lecture about inequality and the four arguments on inequality by Prof. Dr. Teun Dekker.
