Conference focuses on social inequality and poverty across Merseyside

Social Inequality

Postgraduate researchers hosted a conference aimed at focusing on the causes of social inequality and poverty across Merseyside.

Community and voluntary groups from across the region were invited to attend and discuss their experiences of how key political decisions in relation to government social policies have affected local communities within society in recent years.

As a result of the conference, a report will be written based on the key finding and discussions from the event which will be circulated to the local authorities with the region and the relevant government departments.

The six organisers were Ben Williams from the Department of Politics, Jane Ithell and Sarah Tickle from the School of Sociology and Social Policy, Charlotte Kappel from the School of Psychology, Grace Farrington from the School of English and Edna Gitua from the Management School.
