575 - Thematic Session. Global Inequalities: National, International, and Social Movement Perspectives

Tue, August 19, 2:30 to 4:10pm, TBA

Session Submission Type: Invited Session


Over the last thirty years, the process of global market integration has been shifting the pattern of inequality at the national and international levels. While intra-national inequalities across the developed and developing world have been rising because of industrial relocation and the triumph of neoliberal capitalism over state socialism and regulated capitalism, international inequality has been shrinking unevenly, given the rapid economic ascendancy of a few low-income countries. This panel seeks to review cutting-edge sociological research on these trends, discuss their future, and debate whether an alternative globalization with more even distribution of prosperity is possible.
