Equal opportunities in the city

Background factors, economic and social differences are still too often decisive in the city. There is a growing dichotomy in the city. The corona crisis amplifies and deepens existing inequalities and increases the need to do everything possible. The income and wealth gap translates into a long range of inequalities at different times in life — including health, job security and housing situation. Research shows that people with a practical education or a non-Western migration background perform worse in almost all areas of life. That is no longer acceptable.

In this collection you will find articles about equal opportunities in the city.
