This collection of scholarly essays is the product of the Euroculture Intensive Programme (IP) 2019, held at the University of Olomouc, and organized jointly by the Euroculture teams at Georg-August-University Göttingen (Germany), Palacky University Olomouc (Czech Republic) and Savitribai Phule Pune University (India). One of the promises of modern capitalist democracies was – and still is – that they try to alleviate problems of inequality. Especially the postwar European welfare states promised to generate more equality by social, educational, and regulatory measures. However, this promise, embedded in both policies and discourses, encountered major problems. The aim of the IP was to analyze new and old forms of inequality and solidarity in Europe and beyond. The papers cover three subthemes: normative dimensions of inequality and solidarity, material bases of inequality and solidarity, and discursive construction(s) of inequality and solidarity.
