Studying Inequality in India
Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung (RLS) supports comprehensive and critical research on inequality in India by the Indian Institute of Dalit Studies (IIDS). IIDS and RLS have worked together to detangle many issues plaguing marginalised groups, including housing rights, higher education and wealth inequality.
Inequality in India is a multifaceted issue that rears its head in many ways. Whether it is income inequality to access to education, it remains one of the most pressing issues of our time. Certain sections of society have unequal access to opportunities.
IIDS has initiated dialogues to sensitise the public on this topic. IIDS also organises Ambedkar Summer Schools for young people.
