The big picture of inequality in Britain: tackling inequality requires us to see both specific injustices and wider underlying forces

By Ben Baumberg

Abstract

In the past two years we have had two official ‘stock takes’ of equality from the National Equality Panel and the Equality & Human Rights Commission, revealing the true contours of inequality in Britain. But with 1200 pages of detailed data, it can be difficult to see the big picture. Ben Baumberg summarises the messages from LSE’s key contributors to the reports, and argues that policy needs to reflect both the broad canvas and the individual brush strokes of inequality in order to successfully tackle it
