What makes a fair society?

There are always people who feel that society is unfair but, today, there are simply too many of them. Why is this?
What makes a fair society?

How can our political leaders fashion a set of policies which will deliver a society which sufficient numbers of people at least believe to be sufficiently fair? This report responds to the anger and frustration felt by too many EU citizens. It asks whether a rising sense of unfairness may be fuelling it. It defines and measures fairness in a multi-dimensional context and spells out what data can tell us about fairness in Europe today. The report ends by setting out how DG JRC will continue to work on the different dimensions touched upon in the report.
