Open seminar

The new inequality and the redistributive politics that disappeared

Documentation


Katalys in cooperation with the Institute for Futures Studies and ABF Stockholm invite you to a lecture by political scientist and Professor Keith Banting of Queen's University, Canada.

Professor Keith Banting has studied the new inequality in Canada - particularly its political setting and the importance it has for the allocation policy. He raises three understandings of the growing inequality: the traditional idea of poverty reduction, the newer slogan of 99 percent against the rich 1 percent and finally focus on the middle class conditions and problems.

The lecture is about 40 minutes followed by comments and discussions with Ylva Hasselberg, a professor of economic history at Uppsala University and Aaron Etzler, party secretary of the Left Party.

What can we in Sweden learn from the Canadian development? What is the battle of a new distribution and equality policies in Sweden?
