SDG 10 research project (Reducing Inequalities)


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a total of 17 global goals adopted by the UN for the sustainable development of our planet and are to be implemented by 193 countries, including Austria, by the end of 2030. In order to support the federal government in this endeavour, a large number of Austrian research and art institutions have joined forces to form the “UniNEtZ” network to develop a comprehensive options report with future-oriented solutions by the end of 2021.

At the Department of Sociology and Cultural Studies, Prof. Kyoko Shinozaki has taken on the leadership of SDG 10 (Reducing Inequalities) and, together with Senior Scientist Katharina Kreissl, will be researching the complex dynamics of social inequalities in Austria over the next three years with the aim of developing concrete measures and instruments to reduce them together with stakeholders, NGOs and representatives of civil society. This is done in close cooperation with the SDG 1 (No Poverty) team, Prof. Andreas Koch and Dr. Meike Bukowski (link), as well as our cooperation partners, including Danube University Krems and JKU Linz.
