Taking Part

This opportunity has already taken place

Findings from genetics studies are transforming the scientific understanding of how biology and social environments interact to determine life outcomes, passed down across generations. At the same time there continues to be interest in using social and economic policy to reduce barriers to social mobility and intergenerational poverty and disadvantage. Professor Feinstein explains why the science of heredity is not in conflict with attempts to address social inequality but rather indicates the remarkable degree to which beliefs and institutions create barriers to equality of opportunity or outcome.
