In a world of escalating inequalities (income, wealth, health, gender, age, etc.) we decipher facts and find solutions for better, sustainable societies.

Understanding changing distributions and social challenges

For sustainable and just resource distribution

IRSEI, established in 2013 through Pr Chauvel’s PEARL excellence grant (FNR), reinforced by Pr Leist ERC Chair, is dedicated to national research priority areas “Social cohesion and inequalities” & “Health”. We study new socio-economic inequality and dynamics (seniorization, migration, education, etc.) through demography, economics, epidemiology, health science and sociology.
