This event will introduce a special issue of The Journal of Chinese Sociology, which will showcase new analyses of wealth inequality and their implications for social stratification and inequality in comparative perspective.

Chaired by Mike Savage, the contributions will range across Russia, China, South Korea, Brazil, as well as Europe and North America, to reflect on the size of the wealth gap, its dimensions and its significance for remaking traditional class divides.
