Inequality is on the rise and it’s an issue that is rising to the top of the political, economic and social agenda across the EU. Research suggests that individuals are more influenced by subjective than objective inequality. While this perceived inequality is gaining more and more attention, it is still not clear what it really means. How can it be reliably assessed? The EU-funded PERCINEQ project proposes two types of research aiming to contribute to a general theory of perceived inequality. It will seek to explain perceptions within forms of human comportment through an interdisciplinary analysis of the available literature. It will also explore the main causal mechanisms generating inequality perceptions and their effects on society.
