Tackling Inequalities provides Master students with a 6-months opportunity to:

Engage curiously and critically with their own and others’ practices, knowledges and assumptions about (causes of and solutions to) inequalities in Rotterdam.

Learn about Rotterdam through (visiting) other post-industrial cities in Europe.

Practice with adopting and embracing an interdisciplinary and collaborative mindset that gives a voice and listens to others, that acknowledges actors, knowledges and experiences that are often excluded from academic or policy practice, and that resists temptations to jump straight into top-down problem-solving mode.
