When Growing Background Inequalities Meet Resilient Institutions*
Belgium is one among the few OECD countries where income inequalities did not increase substantially over the course of the past three decades. This stability is all the more remarkable, given the degree of economic openness and internal diversity, both of which increased over time. While there is evidence of growing background inequalities (on the basis of region, country of birth, and education), a mature welfare state and intricate institutional framework seem thus far to have contained inequality, as well as a number of potential social, political, and cultural impacts.
