This course overviews contemporary research on ethnic and racial inequality, with special attention to labour market inequalities produced by discriminatory processes. We discuss the distinction between observed “gaps” and “discrimination” and show not all gaps (i.e. observed differences between groups) reflect discriminatory behaviour. We then focus on the study of ethno-racial stratification, with special attention to discrimination theories, explanatory mechanisms and methodological questions.
