Rethinking Global Inequalities

The Halle Institute for Global Research in partnership with Goizueta Business School’s new Business and Society Institute is accepting applications for the pilot grant "Rethinking Global Inequalities". Full-time, continuing, regular faculty from any of Emory’s nine schools are eligible to apply for innovative research projects from any disciplinary, interdisciplinary, or multi-disciplinary perspective. This grant will support research that examines inequality in any country outside of the United States. Projects might include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • the very construction of categories like “inequality,” “inequity,” and “social responsibility”
  • the relationship between inequalities/inequities and other issues such as, but not limited to, climate change, COVID-19, politics, and social movements
  • inequality and the movements (both egalitarian and hierarchical) that it fosters
  • the role of the public, private and/or civic sector in increasing and/or reducing inequality within and across countries
  • the intersections of inequality with race, imperialism, capitalism, colonialism, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, education, labor, the arts, business, and/or health

Comparative projects that include some research in the United States will be considered. The selected application will receive the equivalent of up to USD 20,000 per project. Outcomes may include publications, external funding, program building (including NGO- or community-academic partnerships), research capacity building, art exhibitions and/or other forms of research-based activity.

The grant will fund up to one project in 2020-21.
