Creation of the European observatory of inequality - Inequality Watch

European associations and research centres from Europe create the first European independent network of information of inequality, Inequality Watch, the European Observatory of inequality. “The objective of Inequality Watch is to improve knowledge about inequality in Europe between and in each country, explains Cédric Rio from the French associationObservatoire des inégalités and Inequality Watch coordinator, thanks to the gathering and confrontation of analyses from all Europe”. Analyses of Inequality Watch members are available on www.inequalitywatch.eu. Many public events will also be organized to debate about inequality in Europe.

Europeans benefit from better living conditions than other populations in the World, analyses Anna Barford, Inequality Watch Executive council member from British Organization The Equality Trust, but European societies are very contrasted.” Per example, wealth per inhabitant in 2009 was about 29 300 Euros in Austria against 10 900 Euros in Romania; a French woman is supposed to live 84,1 years against 76,7 years for a Bulgarian one. “Inequality levels in each country are very different, pursues Renato Carmo, Portuguese sociologist from the Observatòrio das Desigualdades and member of Inequality Watch Executive council. We have to understand why inequality is so high in Portugal and so low in Sweden!”.
