Registration open for AMCIS Educational Inequality Conference (July 5-6)

Mechanisms and Institutions

26 March 2018

With this academic conference on 5 and 6 July 2018, AMCIS aims to bring together researchers working on educational inequalities by socioeconomic background, ethnic background and/or gender, from various disciplines, including sociology, economics, political science and educational sciences.

This can include studies that focus on mechanisms that explain how inequalities are created (e.g. in families, or in schools), and studies that focus on emergence or effects of institutional arrangements in educational systems.
