About us

The Antwerp Interdisciplinary Platform for Research into Inequality (AIPRIL) seeks to advance our understanding of how socioeconomic inequalities are changing, what is driving such trends and what, if anything, can be done.

An undertaking of such ambition and complexity requires state-of-the-art research from several disciplines. To that end, the Centre for Social Policy Herman Deleeck has joined forces with the Centre for Urban History and the Institute of Development Policy.

Our 7 year research project will seek to make methodological, theoretical, and empirical advances in this rapidly evolving research field, building on insights from economics, sociology, economic history and development studies.
