Inequality pervades almost all spheres of social life, from income distribution to gender, education, to the burdens of environmental harm or unequal access to opportunity or resources across different countries and socio-economic groups. It is multi-faceted as well as intersectional - one form of inequality may influence and reinforce another. Scholars face the challenge to develop research that sharpens our understanding of inequality as a theoretical concept and its concrete implications for earth system governance, while also acknowledging that the research community itself may be hampered by inequality.
