Equality in Society

The strategic research programme Equality in Society is focused on equality and on how equality can be promoted. The programme provides funding to research that seeks solutions to support the sustainable and equal renewal of basic public services and benefit schemes. The research consortia are expected to address the following questions:

  • What are the mechanisms of inequality in Finland today?
  • How can equality be promoted in connection with the renewal of basic public services and benefit schemes?
  • In what ways can the public sector best support innovative experimentation, learning by experimentation and institutional change so as to maintain a well-managed transition and successfully renew basic public services and benefit schemes?

In addition, the consortia are expected to suggest ways in which we can best ensure that individuals, groups and institutions possess the capabilities and resources that facilitate equal adaptation to the renewal of basic public services and benefit schemes?
