Entrenched Inequalities

- East and West

FOCUS ASIA 27 March 2013

Theories of inequality have so far almost exclusively been based on the empirical example of Western societies or have offered little more than quantitative data. However, each social structure is unique in its local and national characteristics. Inequalities of class may be more entrenched in the old democracies of the West because they have become invisible under the surface of democracy and formal equality, while struggles for citizenship make entrenched inequalities objects of discourse and politics in the global South.
