Analysis of Inequalities and New Social Risks (AINSR)

General information

Recogised research group by the Generalitat de Catalunya

AINSR (ANALYSIS OF INEQUALITIES AND NEW SOCIAL RISKS) is a group of young Spanish scholars in the social sciences who share a research agenda focused on the analysis of a broad array of new social risks that lie behind recent trends in inequality. We work on both the sociological, institutional and the political dimensions of these phenomena. So, on the one hand, we are interested in social risks related to migration, new developments of family structures, population ageing and other relevant socio-demographic changes. On the other, we aim to study the policy responses to such changes and the role of public preferences and demands in shaping policy making.

The group includes recently tenured faculty, assistant professors, post-doctoral researchers and doctoral students who have collaborated in different projects in the past and are working together in the present. Our affiliations are diverse, including Spanish grounded institutions (like the University of Barcelona, the University of Zaragoza and the Spanish National Research Council), universities in the US (University of Northern Iowa, University of South Florida, University of Chicago, Columbia University), the United Kingdom (University of Sheffield, University of Bristol) and Italy (European University Institute).
