[SSJ: 10291] International Workshop at Doshisha University: "Inequalities and Preferences for Redistribution" on July 6&7

From: Fondation France-Japon de l'EHESS <ffj@ehess.fr>
Date: 2018/07/02

Dear friends and colleagues,

The *Fondation France-Japon de l'EHESS* and *Doshisha University Life Risk Research Center* are pleased to announce the holding of the first workshop supported by Toyota Foundation Research Grant Program 2016, "Inequalities and Preferences for Redistribution" at Doshisha University.

Inequalities have increased over the last thirty years. However, this increase has not been the same in every country. Moreover, the perception of these inequalities differs across countries in a paradoxical way: concern about inequality is the largest in Europe, where it has been actually slighter. Differences between actual inequalities and their perception could be explained by a difference of values in the three regions of study, USA, Europe and Japan. Does the perception of inequalities matter more than the objective determinants of inequalities as it leads to different forms of redistribution?

Day 2: *July 7th, from 9:00 to 12:30*
