Structurally Unsound: Exploring Inequalities Project Report

The UK Government’s current approach to tackling inequality should urgently address the multiple levels of disadvantage that some people face, according to a new UCL report.

Structurally Unsound finds that women, working class, ethnic minority and disabled groups often face multiple disadvantages affecting their educational outcomes, employment prospects, home ownership, health and life expectancy.

The report highlights lessons learned and provides recommendations for policymakers and researchers to adopt when approaching structural inequalities.

The Future of Gender Equality in the UK

Last year Rosa, the UK Fund for women and girls, spent time pondering the question: what could the UK look like in 10 years' time, if greater attention is paid to tackling gender inequality? It's a huge topic, so they zoomed in on the theme of work, looking at the part-time economy, pregnancy discrimination, the gender pay gap, and sexual harassment. The result has now been produced in a report, The Future of Gender Equality in the UK.

Welfare Safety Net

The Work and Pensions Committee have released a report on the welfare safety net. They have cited the work research of Women's Budget Group and made reference to gender disparities.

Automation will produce significant productivity gains that will reshape specific sectors and occupations. These gains are likely to be recirculated, with jobs reallocated rather than eliminated, economic output increased, and new sources of wealth created. The problem is likely to be one of how income and wealth are distributed. Automation could create a ‘paradox of plenty’: society would be far richer in aggregate, but, for many individuals and communities, technological change could reinforce inequalities of power and reward.
