Inequality can be conceptualized as the objective or subjective unavailability of the same quantity or quality of economic, social or political resources, possibilities or outcomes for specific individuals or groups in the society. This implies multidimensionality, moral and normative evaluations as its main characteristics. These characteristics make inequality hard to operationalize, which often results in studies with conclusions relevant only for certain aspects of inequality. Although different groupings of inequality and its indicators exist (e.g., economic, social or political inequality), in reality these concepts are intertwined, making conclusions about effects of inequality in different domains complex. The main aim of this presentation is to demonstrate (besides complexity of inequality concept) importance of precision in conceptualizing and measuring inequality (Which level? Which type? Which indicator?) as well as to stress the potential greater importance of subjective/perceived than objective inequality. Presentation is based on our insights from the recent systematic review of quantitative literature about inequality and radicalization (Horizon2020 DARE project ; Franc and Pavlović, 2018). Applied conceptualization of inequality levels, types and dimensions was proven useful and the SR results revealed that social inequality exhibits stronger relationship with radicalization than economic inequality (at individual level in terms of radicalized attitudes - importance of perceived injustice and at macro level in terms of terrorism – importance of human rights abuse). Implications of these insights are discussed in terms of possible applications in future quantitative analyses of secondary data or new data collection within the YOUNG-IN COST action.
