CALL FOR CHAPTERS
Income and Wealth Inequality
Editors-in-Chief:
Rajendra Baikady PhD, Department of Social Work, School of Humanities, University of Johannesburg, South Africa
Jaroslaw Przeperski PhD, Director, Centre for Family Research, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun, Poland
Sven E.O. Hort PhD, Professor Emeritus in Sociology, Schools of Social Studies, Linnaeus University, Sweden.
Dear colleagues we invite you to take part in the largest editorial project on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series will include several volumes, but we will publish an individual call for contribution to each volume separately. In this call for contribution, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on: Income and Wealth Inequality.
Inequality in different forms exists in all societies across the globe. However, since the beginning of industrialization, several countries across the globe are witnessing widening income and wealth inequality within and between different population groups. The further widening of the income and wealth gap, concentration of wealth in the hands of fewer people and a sharp increase in the number of poor people in many societies are posing real threats to achieving a just and equal society. Income and wealth inequality and the widening gap in income and wealth distribution among rich and poor exists in both advanced and developing economies. This increasing wealth and income inequality when left unchecked, may result in the following: reduced economic growth and stability; concentration of political and decision-making power in the hands of few people; lack of adequate and well-trained human resource; reduction in investment and reduced spending; and political, economic and social instability. Furthermore, high and sustained levels of inequality, especially related to income and wealth may lead to several other social problems in society. Deep-rooted and unmanaged inequality may lead to communal disharmony and social instability along with threat to human and animal life. Entrenched inequality of income and wealth may also significantly undermine individuals’ educational and occupational choices.
This volume in the Mapping Global Inequalities series aims to explores income and wealth inequality and its impact on different sections of population in different societies across the globe. The principal aim of this volume is to map the distribution of income and wealth in different countries and among different sections of the society and see how unevenly they are distributed. We also aim to understand the impact and implications of unequal distribution of wealth and income on human development and on the educational and employment attainment of youth in different societies. We are looking forward to contributions that can examine the following questions in general and income and wealth inequality in particular:
1. What do we know about income and wealth inequality (i.e., what is the definition and extent of income and wealth inequality)?
2. Why does income and wealth inequality exist in a country and what are the consequences (i.e., root causes from micro, meso and to macro levels)?
3. Is inequality a necessary evil?
4. What do you notice in your country with regard to income and wealth inequality?
5. Why is rising income and wealth inequality a concern?
6. What impact does this have on you and your community?
We welcome contributions that include but are not limited to: (1) defining income and wealth inequality in different contexts; (2) contemporary theories of income and wealth inequality; (3) different forms of income and wealth inequality; (4) measuring income and wealth inequality; (5) impact of income and wealth inequality on different sections of society i.e., youth, women, children, disabled, elderly, and other marginalized sections; (6) impact of income and wealth inequality on economic development; (7) crime, social deviance and income inequality; (8) governance, corruption and wealth inequality; (9) income, wealth inequality and poverty in various countries; and (10) Sustainable Development Goals and Income inequality.
The goal is to gather the best possible contributions in the respective areas and make this a truly global reference work. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters from at least 30 countries in this and every other volume in the series discussing various aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic contexts, thus providing a valuable source for researchers, academics and policy makers at both local and global levels. Each of the Mapping Global Inequality volumes will also include chapters on cross-country comparison to provide an understanding of similarities and differences in many aspects of inequality across different regions. Additionally, an exclusive and extensive introductory chapter with an overview of the volume, its scope and comparative understanding of all the contributions will be covered in this and every other volume.
Structure of the Volume:
Level of Your Contribution: Our aim is to provide an accessible and exciting handbook for specialists, academics, advanced students, and readers who are familiar with the field as well as those from other related disciplines.
We expect the size of each chapter to be about 8000-10,000 words (including the reference list). We are inviting chapters that are critical summaries/synopses (Tertiary literature) rather than original research reports.
We are accepting contributions on a rolling basis and the writing and reviewing stage is scheduled to take place until approximately July 2024 and final proofing between then and the end of the year. The sooner you submit your chapter the sooner it will be published online and become citable. Contributions to all the volumes in this series are peer-reviewed.
Online-First Publication of Chapters: Once the production and proofing loop is completed, the chapter will be published online-first on Springer Nature's online publication webpage, http://link.springer.com. At that stage the article will be DOI citable. You will also be able to access it via your chapter page on METEOR. As an author of this project, you can also access via METEOR all other Springer Nature References published online.
Please keep in mind: the faster you send in your manuscript, the sooner it will be published and become citable.
Print Publication: The print publication of the volume you contribute to will be finalized once the last chapter of the volume has been reviewed and gone through the production workflow.
Online Update of Chapters: One copy of the published version of your chapter is re-ingested to METEOR for further updates. The chapter opens up for updates again in METEOR and the status of your chapter changes to ‘Open for Submission’. At this time, you can upload fresh or updated files, if you wish. The updated and approved chapter will be published as a new version in the living reference version of this project. Editors and authors can submit updates to articles at the pace of science advancement. On behalf of the Editors at Palgrave/Springer Nature, we thank you for your contributions. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have.
Interested authors should kindly send a 250-word abstract and author bio by 25th May, 2022 to Dr. Rajendra Baikady (rajendra.baikady@mail.huji.ac.il). Please indicate in the subject header - Income and Wealth Inequality: Chapter proposal. The editorial team members will evaluate the submitted abstract on a rolling basis and notify the authors along with full chapter submission guidelines.
Qualifications: We recommend that academic authors have, be supervised by, or in pursuit of their PhD, whereas non-academic professionals should have at least 3 years of experience in the field.

Dear colleagues we invite you to take part in one of the largest editorial projects on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series encompasses several volumes, but we will publish an individual call for contributions to each volume separately. In this call for contributions, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on Economic Inequality
This volume in the mapping global inequality series aims to provide an understanding and tools to measure, describe, monitor, evaluate, and analyze economic inequality within different political, economic, cultural and geographic boundaries. While exploring different aspects of economic inequality we aim to understand the connection between Globalization, Neoliberal Policies and Economic Inequality across the globe. The process of globalization and technological advancement in the 21stcentury resulted in unequal distribution of wealth and economic resources between and within different countries and thus leaving a huge number of people experiencing discrimination and unequal treatment. Unequal distribution of economic resources brings inequality and disparities between and within the countries, communities and different population groups which further leads to several social problems. Economic inequality is a concern in almost all countries around the world and often people are trapped in poverty with little chance to climb up the social ladder as they experience lack of resources and opportunities. This volume invites contributions approaching economic inequality at different levels of global society (whether local, regional, national, or transnational) --the micro, meso, and macro.
The volume is multidisciplinary in its approach and encourages scholars to respond to the following four questions:
¾ What do we know about economic inequality (i.e., what is the definition and perception of inequality)?
¾ Why is economic inequality still existing in the country and what are the consequences (i.e., root causes from micro, meso or macro level)?
¾ What are the current trends in economic inequality?
Chapters in this volume will explore how economic resources such as land, labor, capital, and technology are unequally distributed among different population groups and its impact on the overall human development. Further, this will also focus on how economic inequality experienced in a country will affect its progress towards achieving different Sustainable Development Goals. We invite chapters that examine: (i) anatomy of economic inequality ; (ii) globalization, labor market and economic inequality; (iii) patterns of globalization, regionalization and their consequences on economic development (iv) analytical and normative responses to globalization; (v) agriculture and economic development in developed countries; (vi) measuring economic inequality; (vii) the influence of the urban informal sector on economic inequality; (viii) identifying and measuring economic discrimination; (ix) role of higher education to reduce inequality in developing countries; (x) skill development and economic development; (xi) trade, foreign investment, and economic inequality in developing countries; (xii) progressive social security programs; (xiii) entrepreneurship, jobs, and economic growth; (xiv) role of policymakers in reducing economic inequality; (xv) technological development, digital transformation, big data, and the future of economic development.
The goal is to gather the best possible contributions in the respective areas and make this reference work as a truly global project. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters from at least 30 countries in this and each volume discussing various aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic context providing a valuable source for researchers, academics and policy makers at both local and global context. Each of the Mapping Global Inequality volumes will also include chapters on cross-country comparison to provide an understanding of similarities and differences in many aspects of inequality across different regions.

Dear colleagues we invite you to take part in one of the largest editorial projects on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series encompasses several volumes, but we will publish an individual call for contributions to each volume separately. In this call for contributions, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on Concepts and Theories
In the year 2015 United Nations formulated Sustainable development goals and set reducing inequality in all its form within and among countries as one of the major targets to be achieved by 2030. Inequality has since moved to the forefront of the policy discussion and ‘Leaving no one behind’ become the tagline of many programmes and debates. However, the advancement in technology, industrial development and innovations in science and economy in the post-Sustainable Development period neither eradicated nor reduced this phenomenon. Further uncontrolled income gap, wealth concentration and growing inequality across the regions and regimes jeopardized the achievements so far made by internationally agreed goals. According to available literature even today extreme inequality is out of control. As a result, hundreds of millions of people are living in extreme distress and disparity. Constantly changing world society is at the crossroads and it is inevitable to address growing inequality in different forms by the global leaders, policymakers, academics and practitioners at micro, meso and macro level.
The first volume of the series Mapping Global inequality aims to establish and critically examine the concepts and theories related to various forms of inequality in different societies. This volume aims to capture themes and debates around elucidating and studying why inequality is global in nature or what makes inequality persist in a global society. We invite scholars across different social science disciplines to debate and discuss what inequality is and what it is not, how the concept and perceptions of inequality is differently understood by people and how that impacts the development and growth of a society. The chapters presented in this volume will underscore the complexities and nuances of the phenomenon and showcase the various ways it is relevant to and concerns associated with researching it.
¾ What are the different narratives of inequalities (i.e., what is the definition and impact of inequality)?
¾ Why inequality still existing in the country and what are the consequences (i.e., root causes from micro, meso or macro level)?
¾ What are the Systemic Obstacles to achieve Equal Opportunity and Equal Justice?
¾ What are the available solutions to reduce inequality (in terms of policy, social action and programmes)?
We invite the prospective authors to debate and examine (1) the concept of inequality in different social, political and economic contexts; (2) defining inequality, equity and equality; (3) theorizing inequality, equity and equality in different societies across the globe; (4) outlining different aspects such as economic development, market growth and states’ ideology in relation to growing inequality; (5) fundamental political and ideological foundations; (6) role of globalization, neoliberalism and privatization in rising inequality; (7) defining and examining different types of inequality.
The goal is to gather the best possible contributions in the respective areas and make this reference work as truly global in nature. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters from at least 30 countries in this and each volume discussing various aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic contexts, providing a valuable source for researchers, academics and policy makers at both local and global context. Each of the Mapping Global Inequality volumes will also include chapters on cross-country comparisons to provide an understanding of similarities and differences in many aspects of inequality across different regions. Additionally, an exclusive and extensive introductory chapter with an overview of the volume, its scope and comparative understanding of all the contributions will be covered in this and all the other volumes.
Structure of the Volume:
Level of Your Contribution: Our aim is to provide an accessible and exciting handbook for specialists, academicians, advanced students, and readers who are familiar with the field as well as those from other related disciplines.

Dear colleagues, we invite you to take part in the project Mapping Global Inequality - a Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series will consist of several volumes, but we will publish an individual call for contributions to each volume separately. In this call for contribution, we are seeking authors for the volume on Racial and Ethnic Inequality.
Proposal:
There is no systematic documentation of tertiary literature on systemic racism, specifically racial and ethnic inequality in different regions and regimes. This volume in the Mapping Global Inequalities series aims to explore different aspects of racism and classism with a particular focus on racial and ethnic inequality and its impact on life, well-being, and development in different countries. With growing global inequality in terms of political-economic concentrations of wealth and power in democracies and non-democracies alike, there is persistent prevalence of deprivations across these dimensions: unequal treatment in terms of access and opportunities, violation of basic rights and failures to uphold duties to protect basic rights, and structural and societal injustice based on gender, sexuality, dis-ability, indigeneity, class, race, ethnicity, and color. Debates abound about race, racism, and racial justice in the global context but systematic survey across a wide set of countries and regions are still forthcoming. People's perceptions and understanding of inequality of various kinds are constantly shifting along with the advancement of information and digital communication technology. However, despite several social and public policy efforts at national and international levels in several countries and regions around the world, the situation of racial minorities is deteriorating. In its simple definition, racial discrimination refers to unequal treatment of persons or groups on the basis of their race or ethnicity. Discrimination can either be defined by law or societal norms or both. Having said that, racial and ethnic discrimination at structural, societal, and systemic levels beyond state or individual acts of individual discrimination prevails in many societies across the globe; often times this supersedes the realm of law and falls below in the more nebulous realm of culture and social stratification. Indeed, the severity and the impact of inequality differs based on the overall development of the countries. For example, racial discrimination in the wealthier countries differs from the racial and ethnic inequality experienced by the people in less developed and developing countries. However, racial and ethnic inequality combined with various other discrimination, for example legal and political, harms human growth and development in general. In different societies these inequities and inequalities take various forms such as the wealth gap, opportunities foreclosure and restrictions in social, political and economic participation and freedom. Several societies across the globe also document persistent racial inequality in education, employment, housing, health access, and a wide range of other social domains.
Despite enormous efforts, both at policy, research and legal levels, intergenerational discrimination and structural racism still prevails and prevents the sustainable and equitable growth of several societies across the globe. Furthermore, structural racism, class difference and ethnic inequality are among contemporary drivers that prevent minority communities from obtaining fair housing, adequate neighborhood resources (such as basic food security), robust healthcare infrastructure and services, and equal access to jobs and education opportunities, especially in the developing economies but also advanced, industrial, developed countries. Compounding matters, the phenomenon of stigma, othering, prejudice, bias and discrimination in global societies in relation to class, caste and race, and other modalities of social stratification, marginalization, and exclusion depreciates and exacerbates the unjust societal conditions of victims of racial and ethnic minority groups and communities. In a remarkable move in 2015, the United Nations along with the world leaders launched the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), following on the project of the 2000 Millennium Development Goals; these are widely known as global goals aiming to reduce inequality of various kinds and ensure equality and social justice for all. However, despite the many promises of a ‘better life for all’, racial, ethnic, class, gender, sexuality, immigrant, indigenous, and disability inequalities continue to shape the life of a larger number of people in different societies across the globe. The aspirations, aims and opportunities are capsized in the households where victims of class, race and ethnic inequality exist. The crisis is deepening with the unstoppable force of climate change and environmental catastrophes. While examining racial inequality and its impact on different communities and population groups in different countries and regions we aim to address the following questions in this volume.
¾ What are the social, cultural & structural explanations for racial and ethnic inequality in various political-legal-economic systems across national and international lines?
¾ How can we measure racial and ethnic discrimination?
¾ Why do racial and ethnic inequality continue to persist even when the legal constitutions of democracy forbid their continuation?
¾ What does the available data say about racial and ethnic inequalities in different countries?
¾ How do different societies across the globe tackle differential treatments with regards to race, class and ethnicity?
¾ If the pressure, mandates, and proclamations of multilateral institutions, such as the United Nations, are inadequate to eradicate racial inequality in many societies, then what must those societies do on their own in terms of social policy and legal transformation to ensure just, equal, and equitable societies which are becoming increasingly diverse and pluralistic?
The volume aims to gain an understanding of the following: (1) Theorizing racial inequality; (2) demographics of racial inequality; (3) Nature of racial inequality in different countries, regimes and regions; (4) Contemporary debates on structural and systemic race and racism (5) why racial inequality persists; (6) Impact of racial inequality on different sections of society i.e., youth, women, children, disabled, elderly, sexual minorities, indigenous peoples and other marginalized sections of society; (7) Reducing racial inequality in education, health, social opportunities and criminal justice systems; (8) Strategies for reducing racial and ethnic prejudice; (9) Economic Security Programs aiming to reduce racial inequality; (10) Closing the racial wealth gap; (11) Comparative slavery and race relations in the Americas; (12) The evolution of slave regimes in a comparative perspective; (13) Intersections between race, nation, and citizenship in MENA, Latin America, Asia and beyond; (12) Individual beliefs and attitudes about class, race and ethnic inequality in the global society.
The goal is to gather original contributions in the respective areas and make this reference work truly global in nature. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters from at least 30 countries in this endeavor, and each volume in the series will discuss various aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic contexts providing a valuable source for the researchers, academics and policy makers at both local and global contexts. Each of the Mapping Global Inequality volumes will also include chapters on cross-country comparisons to provide an understanding of similarities and differences in many aspects of inequality across different regions and contexts. Additionally, an extensive introductory chapter with an overview of the volume, its scope and comparative understanding of all the contributions will be covered in this work and all other volumes.
Structure of the Volume:
Level of Your Contribution: Our aim is to provide an accessible and exciting handbook for specialists, academicians, advanced students, and readers who are familiar with the field as well as those from other related disciplines.
The size of each chapter that we are expecting will be circa 8000-10,000words (including the reference list). We are inviting the chapters that are critical summaries/synopses (Tertiary literature) rather than original research reports.
We are accepting contributions on a rolling basis and writing and reviewing is scheduled to take place until approximately July 2024 and final proofing between then and the end of the year.

Inequality of Opportunities

Dear colleagues, we invite you to take part in the largest editorial project on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series encompasses 30+ volumes, but we will publish individual call for contributions to each volume separately. In this call for contribution, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on Inequality of Opportunities
This volume in the Mapping Global Inequalities series aims to explore how inequality in opportunities affects different sections of population in different societies across various regions and regimes. Our aim here is to explore how the state and society can guarantee equal access to basic resources to its members regardless of their circumstances and disadvantages. How and to what extent a civil society, State and third sector can collaborate in co-creating a just society where opportunities and resources are equally distributed. Inequality can persist in many dimensions and impact different population groups differently. Most affected in society would be the disadvantaged and the marginalized, those who are denied of their basic rights and opportunities in relation to other section of society. Research studies focusing on inequality in the recent past tend to argue that focus on reducing inequality of opportunity is the crucial missing link in the contemporary development agenda. Despite the introduction and implementation of the global development goals in 2015, our commitment to achieving equality and ensuring equal opportunity for all sections of society tends to be less successful.
Inequality of opportunities is largely dependent on the choices people can make. The choices that people make depends on the ability and economic stability of the individual. People living in countries where individual decisions are determined by limited nationally available resources have fewer alternatives to choose from than people living in wealthier and developed countries. Hence, inequality in opportunities is more of a policy and programe issue than an individual's ability and capability to create his or her own destiny. The economic, developmental, and industrial policies of a nation can create a number of opportunities and economic gains to its citizens. Furthermore, a growing number of literatures shows that inequality in opportunity is more common in societies where there exist practices of unequal access to education, segregation of labor markets into insiders and outsiders, and where financial markets favor the better-off. National policies that support and create unequal access to opportunities for work, education, happiness, health, longer life expectancy, assets acquisition, and social mobility result in a world with injustice and inequality. Thus, reducing inequality and creating a just and equal world is not only an individual's responsibility but rather a collaboration between the state, state machineries and citizens.
We aim to address the following questions in this volume on Inequality of Opportunities:
1. How is inequality of opportunities defined in different countries and societies?
2. How do we know there exists gross inequality in terms of opportunities and what are the evidence?
3. What does available data/ evidence say about inequality in opportunity in different countries?
4. How are different societies across the globe tackling inequality in terms of opportunities and creating a just and equitable society?
We invite contributions that addresses: (1) contemporary theories of inequality in opportunities; (2) how inequality in opportunities effect growth and societies' attainment of sustainable development goals; (3) causes and consequences of inequalities in opportunities; (4) why we should talk about inequality in opportunities in times of globalization and neoliberalism; (5) why decent work and employment opportunities are crucial in creating an equal and just society; (6) impact of inequality in opportunities on different sections of society i.e., youth, women, children, disabled, elderly, and other marginalized sections; (7) inequality in opportunities in different national and regional contexts; (8) comparative perspectives on inequality in opportunities; (9) how the quality of education opens employment opportunities and reduces inequalities.
Our aim is to gather the best possible contributions in the respective area’s and make this reference work truly global in nature. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters in this volume and each chapter will discuss different aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic contexts. The editorial team aims to cover at least 30 different countries in each of these volumes so that this series will be a valuable source for researchers, academics and policy makers at both local and global levels. To further this aim, each issue will be saturated with the whole problem of inequality from 2 perspectives: countries and topics. This will give us a sense of fulfilling the description of the indicated problem of inequality. Each volume will also include chapters on cross-country comparison to provide an understanding of similarities and differences in many aspects of inequality across different regimes and regions. In addition to this, each volume will have an exclusive and extensive introductory chapter that provides an overview of the volume, its scope and a comparative understanding of all the contributions covered in the volume(s).

Dear colleagues, we invite you to take part in the largest editorial project on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series encompasses 30+ volumes, but we will publish individual calls for contributions to each volume separately. In this call for contribution, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on: Inequality and Young Lives
There is no systematic coverage of tertiary literature on various kinds of inequality and its impact on young lives across the globe. Inequality in any society causes a wide range of social, economic and political problems. The impact of inequality on children and youth may be in terms of reduced life expectancy, high infant mortality, poor educational attainment, low social mobility, increased levels of maltreatment and violence, and problems related to mental illness. Further inequalities persist in many societies at the micro, mezzo, macro and exo levels which undermine the development of human potential and overall growth. Children and youth from disadvantaged communities across the globe face a number of challenges which increase their vulnerabilities. Furthermore, financial instability, lack of opportunities and accessibility to services decrease their quality of life and well-being. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) developed by the United Nations focus on reducing inequalities with special focus on young lives, i.e., children and the youth.
This volume in the Mapping Global Inequality Springer series aims to explore various domains of inequalities and the impact on young lives. We aspire to cover a wide range of broader themes surrounding child and youth population and their challenges globally. Therefore, we invite contributions that critically examine the present status of child and youth development, empowerment and challenges in global societies.
Contributions from across the social science disciplines that address any type of inequality and challenges related to youth and children is welcomed.
In this volume (Inequality and Young Lives), we aim to address following questions:
1. What does inequality mean for children and youth?
2. How do we know there are gross inequalities in the lives of the youth and children?
3. What does available data say about global inequality and young lives?
4. How are different societies across the globe tackling inequality with youth and children?
The goal is to gather the best possible contributions in the respective areas and make this reference work truly global in nature. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters from at least 30 countries in this and each of the other 32 volumes discussing various aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic context providing a valuable resource for researchers, academics and policy makers at both local and global levels. Each of the Mapping Global Inequality volumes will also include chapters on cross-country comparisons to provide an understanding of similarities and differences in many aspects of inequality across different regions.

Dear colleagues, we invite you to take part in the largest editorial project on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series encompasses 30+ volumes, but we will publish individual calls for contributions to each volume separately. In this call for contribution, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on Inequality and Aging
This volume in the Mapping Global Inequality Series aims to explore the impact of inequality on the elderly population in different societies across the globe. Aging is one of the important stages of human life. It is true that although older people have lots of experiences and can be very valuable part of society, aging often brings uncertainties, illness, insecurity, and loss of employment, partners and caregivers. Providing care, income security, and conducive living conditions are basic needs towards the wellbeing of elderly people. However, rapidly changing society and the value system have brought greater changes in the social life of people. Considerable changes in family patterns and living arrangements in societies across the world require more advanced and inclusive social policies and welfare administration. Globalization, neoliberalism and industrialization have brought about many inequalities in several parts of the world. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, several countries have witnessed rapid demographic changes with gross inequalities in terms of basic necessities and welfare services. Sharp growth in the elderly population, reduced opportunities for the younger generation and increased demand for basic necessities such as food, health and safety are questioning the sustainability and effectiveness of existing welfare and social security provisions in ensuring safe and equitable life for all. Neo-liberalism and globalization induced privatization that has resulted in gross inequalities in many societies, especially in the global south. Furthermore, development in terms of information and technology, global connectedness and global mobility has resulted in limited traditional care provisions for the elderly in many countries across the globe. Contributions from across the social science discipline that addresses any type of inequality and challenges related to aging and the elderly are welcomed. In this volume (Inequality and Ageing), we aim to address the following questions:
(1) What does inequality mean for the elderly population?
(2) How do we know there is gross inequality in the lives of the elderly?
(3) What does available data say about global inequality and aging?
(4) How are different societies across the globe tackling inequality with a growing elderly population?
Some major themes to be covered are:
(1) Aging in different parts of the world (2) Globalization and Elderly issues (3) Aging in Neo-liberal Economics (4) Population Aging and Employability Challenges (5) Elderly and Human Rights Issues (6) Sustainable Development Goals and Elderly Care (7) Aging, Health Care Spending, and Long‐Term Care (8) Critical Evaluation of Existing Policies (9) End of Life Care (10) Poverty and Elderly (11) Aging and Discrimination (12) Psycho-Social Issues and Interventions.
Our aim is to gather the best possible contributions in the respective area’s and make this reference work truly global in nature. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters in this volume and each chapter will discuss different aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic contexts.

Dear colleagues we invite you to take part in one of the largest editorial projects on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series consist of several volumes, but we will publish an individual call for contribution to each volumes separately. In this call for contribution, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on Gender Inequality
This volume in the Mapping Global Inequalities series aims to explore the extent of gender inequality in different societies and the role of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in achieving gender equity across the globe. This important volume intends to address several intersectional issues related to gender inequality and development in different regimes and regions. We aim to provide a deeper understanding on the changing role of gender, perception of gender and the marginalization and segregation of sections of the population on the basis of gender in societies across the globe. The volume will also attempt to understand what public engagement looks like in different fields of the social sciences and what impact this has on establishing a gender-balanced society based on the principles and goals set by the Sustainable Development Goals. Contributions from across the social science discipline that addresses any type of challenges related to gender equality are welcomed. We aim to address the following questions in this volume
¾ What do we know about the Gender Inequality (i.e., what is the definition and extent of Gender Inequality)?
¾ Why does gender inequality existing and what are the consequences (i.e., root causes from micro, meso or macro level)?
¾ How effective are gender indicators when it comes to measure gender inequality?
¾ What does available data say about gender inequalities in different countries

This volume principally focuses on (i) Defining gender inequalities in different societies in different regions; (ii) causes of gender inequalities (iii) measuring the impact of gender inequality; (iv) the consequences of gender inequality; (v) the impact of gender inequality in different sections of society i.e., embryos, fetuses, babies, youth, girls, and children (vi) Gender inequality in different life stages taking an intersectional approach – embryos, fetuses, babies, children, youth, adults, old age; (vii) Gender and intersectionality – disability, race and ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity; (viii) Gender and migration; (ix) The efficacy of gender mainstreaming ; (x) Gender and socio-economic development; (xi) Gender and social movements; (xii) Gender and care; (xiii) Gender, power and decision making; (iv) gender inequality in education; (xiv) Human rights and gender inequality; (xvi) Psychological effects of gender inequality; (xvii) Economic development and gender inequality; (xviii) Violence Against Women and Criminal Justice; (xix) Women’s Lived Experiences of the Gender Gap; (xx) Gendered Perspectives on the Labour Market; (xxi) Public Policy Challenges (xxii) Gender and health, gender, science and technology, gender and development; .
Our aim is to gather the best possible contributions in the respective areas and make this reference work truly global in nature. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters in this volume and each chapter will discuss different aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic contexts. The editorial team aims for covering at least 30 different countries in each of these volumes so that this series will be a valuable source for researchers, academics and policy makers at both the local and global context. Further, the aim in each issue is to saturate the whole problem of inequality from 2 perspectives: countries and topics. This will give us a sense of fulfilling the description of the indicated problem of inequality. Each of these volumes will also include chapters on cross-country comparisons to provide an understanding of similarities and differences in many aspects of inequality across different regimes and regions. In addition to this, each volume will have an exclusive and extensive introductory chapter that provides an overview of the volume, its scope and comparative understanding of all the contributions covered in the volume (s).

Dear colleagues, we invite you to take part in one of the largest editorial projects on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series encompasses 30+ volumes, but we will publish individual calls for contributions to each volume separately. In this call for contribution, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on: Educational Inequality.
Gross inequalities in terms of resources and opportunities in educational attainment is experienced by many countries in recent decades. These inequalities tend to result in major differences in the educational success or efficiency of individuals, communities, and societies more severely in the global southern nations and also in the global northern nations. Further lack of opportunities, resources, and facilities to get adequate education leads to a reduction in the productive potential and competencies of people for the growth and prosperity of a country. Increased and uncontrolled educational disparities also lead to suppression and restriction of social and economic mobility.
This volume within the Mapping Global Inequality series will examine the unequal distribution of educational resources in different countries across the globe. The volume exclusively explores different aspects of education, development of educational programmes, and its reach to the public in different societies. Contributions in this volume will address unequal distribution of academic resources, including but not limited to school funding, qualified and experienced teachers, books, and technologies to socially excluded communities.
Contributions from across the social science discipline that address any type of inequality and challenges related to educational attainment are welcomed.
We aim to address the following questions in this volume (Educational Inequality):
1. What are the definitions and indicators of educational inequality?
2. How do we know there is gross inequality in educational resources and opportunities?
3. What does available data say about educational inequalities in different countries?
4. How are different societies across the globe tackling inequality with regards to educational opportunities?
This volume principally focuses on (1) Defining educational inequalities in different societies in different regions; (2) measuring educational inequality; (3) causes of educational inequality; (4) impact of educational inequality on different sections of society i.e., youth, girls, and children (5) gender inequality in education and (6) responses and measures to prevent or tackle inequality.
Our aim is to gather the best possible contributions in the respective areas and make this reference work truly global in nature. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters in this volume and each chapter will discuss different aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic context. The editorial team aims to cover at least 30 different countries in each volume within the series so that this series will be a valuable resource for researchers, academics, and policy makers at both local and global levels. To advance this objective, the whole problem of inequality will be saturated in each issue from 2 perspectives: countries and topics.

Dear colleagues, we invite you to take part in the largest editorial project on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series encompasses 30+ volumes, but we will publish individual call for contributions to each volume separately. In this call for contribution, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on: Digital inequality
This volume in the Mapping Global Inequalities series aims to gain an in-depth understanding of how different people use the internet to meet their information and communication needs and to what extent digital inequality persists in different parts of the world. Unprecedented advancement in information and technology and its unequal distribution among communities and societies across the globe has led to a digital divide with enormous impact on development, growth and advancement. Due to the digital divide, communities are classified based on their ability to access internet resources and services. This classification has segregated less developed and underdeveloped economies based on their inability to get access to round the clock high speed internet to access online resources. This has resulted in several interrelated problems such as lack of access to economic, political, education, health and other benefits to marginalized sections of the society based on their ability to access digital resources. In a globalized society, internet has become a crucial source for the general public as it provides general information and growth opportunity in every aspect of life. In this respect, inability to access reliable and stable internet may lead to severe impairment in the overall development of a population in any society. Furthermore, available literature on digital inequality shows a deepening gap between different communities, societies and population groups in terms of their ability to access internet, have proper digital competences and utilize digital technologies. Digital inequality research also suggests that access to digital resources are not evenly distributed among the general populations in majority of countries across the globe.
Contributions from across different science disciplines (sociology, economics, public governance, social work, anthropology, IT etc.) that look at any type of challenges related to digital access and inequality are welcomed.
We aim to address following questions in this volume:
1. What does digital inequality look like in different countries?
2. How do we know there is gross inequality in terms of access to digital resources?
3. What does available data say about digital inequalities in different countries?
4. How are different societies across the globe addressing inequality with regards to access to digital resources?
This volume principally focuses on (1) Defining digital inequality in different societies in different regions; (2) measuring digital inequality; (3) causes of digital inequality; (4) impact of inequality on different sections of society i.e., youth, girls, and children (5) digital inequality and education (6) impact of digital divide on life course. We are also interested in contributions addressing the extent to which gender, age, personality, health, literacy, education, economic resources, attitude, ability and accessibility to material access and digital competences of the people in different societies result in deepening digital gaps, digital divide or digital exclusion.
Our aim is to gather the best possible contributions in the respective area’s and make this reference work truly global in nature. There will be a minimum of 40 chapters in this volume and each chapter will discuss different aspects of inequality in different socio-political and economic contexts. The editorial team aims to cover at least 30 different countries in each of these volumes so that this series will be a valuable source for researchers, academics and policy makers at both local and global levels. To further this aim, each issue will be saturated with the whole problem of inequality from 2 perspectives: countries and topics. This will give a sense of fulfilling the description of the indicated problem of inequality. We also encourage authors to prepare chapters with cross country comparison providing an understanding of similarities and differences in many aspects of inequality across different regimes and regions.

Dear colleagues, we invite you to take part in one of the largest editorial projects on Inequality - Mapping Global Inequality - Major Reference Work Book Series being published by Springer Nature, United States.
The Series encompasses several volumes, but we will publish individual call for contribution to each volume separately. In this call for contribution, we are particularly seeking authors for the volume on Collaboration, Partnership and Advocacy- Reduced Inequality.
Reducing Inequality in all its forms is an urgent matter of concern. Several local, national and international organizations, state and non-state machineries are implementing various policies and programs aimed at reducing inequality. As a matter of urgency to keep central the reduction of inequality, the United Nations in 2015 made a call to imagine a sustainable, just and equal society by 2030. As part of this initiative, world leaders developed and implemented 17 goals widely known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). All 17 goals outlined in the SDGs target several social problems and aims to transform the global society in the next nine years. Reducing inequality, realizing gender equality, reducing poverty, increasing economic prosperity, employment generation, ensuring social security, education and good health for all are few of the important goals and targets that SDG's intend to achieve in all countries across the globe. Promoting collaboration, partnership and advocacy is also one of the targets that seeks to enhance the quality and accessibility of various services and resources to all sections of the society.
This volume in the Mapping Global Inequalities series aims to explore how collaboration, partnership and co-building helps in reducing various kinds of inequalities persisting in different societies across the globe. Societies across the globe experience different challenges and issues with respect to their development. Countries equipped with advanced scientific and technological resources along with skilled human resources are able to provide better living conditions, social security and entitlements to its citizens compared to countries listed as poor and mostly located in the global south. The wealth and opportunity provided by the process of globalization and neoliberalism has widened the gap between richer and poor countries by advancing the industrial economy in the wealthier countries. Thus, the development agenda produced by globalization and neoliberalism has mostly benefited the industrialized countries in the west and led to widespread inequality and unequal distribution of wealth, resources and services among and within countries. As a result, countries in the global south remain poor and underdeveloped with limited or no access to basic resources and services. With the widening income and wealth gap between countries and regions, efforts to reduce inequality among and within countries is urgently needed now more than ever than before. Strong international cooperation and partnership can help in co-building equal and just societies whereas advocacy can help in fulfilling the basic entitlements of people living in less developed and developing countries. Collaboration can lead to innovative and fresh solutions to social problems and by partnering with advanced economies, bring together different experiences, approaches and ideas to solve social problems such as inequality, poverty and marginalization. In this volume, we aim to explore how collaboration and partnership between researchers, educators, institutions and organizations within and between countries can help enhance the living conditions of people in different countries and regions. Contributions in this volume will address these questions:
1. What role can collaboration, partnership and advocacy play in reducing inequality?
2. How and why is advocacy a powerful instrument in bringing social change?
3. How and why are partnerships and collaborations the best approach to finding solutions to the problems of our time?
4. Why is there an increasing need to search for integrated solutions to make development more sustainable and accessible to all sections of society?
5. How can collaboration and partnership between and within different countries help in reducing inequality?
6. How do partnership and collaboration help in economic, social and industrial development?
We welcome contributions approaching: (1) Collaboration and partnership between countries; (2) Collaboration and partnership between institutions and governments; (3) Collaboration and partnership between educators, researchers, policymakers, research labs and other scientific entities; (4) Partnership and collaboration between developed and developing countries; (5) Resource mobilization; (6) Role of advocacy in empowerment and promotion of social, economic and political inclusion for all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status; (7) Partnership, collaboration and advocacy for global solidarity (8) Partnership, collaboration and advocacy for SDGs; (9) Partnership and collaboration in sharing knowledge, skills and technology for development; (10) Role of effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships in building and sustaining international collaboration and partnership.
