Exploring sustainable strategies to counteract territorial inequalities from an intersectional approach 

Project financed by:

  • European Union

 Project coordination: 

  • Universitat de Barcelona 

 Project partner in Vienna:

  • TU Wien, Research Unit Sociology

The EXIT project aims to explore the manifestations, root causes and implications of socioeconomic inequalities within and between areas that are often referred to as ‘left behind’. The project – involving seven universities and four civil society organizations from eight countries – will propose ways to tackle such territorial inequalities through a rigorous action-research programme of cross-disciplinary and multi-sited research with communities on the ground. The project will explore, from an intersectional and participatory approach, how inhabitants, institutions and organizations in these areas perceive, experience and counteract inequalities. The comprehensive programme will enable knowledge sharing between countries and communities in order to propose sustainable strategies to address growing inequalities between and within territories. 

Project period: 2022-2025 

Project coordination in Vienna: Daniele Karasz
