Europe and the world are inequalities. They manifest in extreme income and wealth disparities, social exclusion or various forms of discrimination (pertaining to gender, age, disability, nationality, trade union activity, etc.). The IPA provides evidence for public policies (evidence-based-policy) that counteract these negative trends in accordance with the idea of sustainable development and social market economy. In democratic state, social inclusion and solidarity are constitutive values.
