Jason Beckfield, professor and Chair of Sociology at Harvard University is the guest of our first podcast in English. Jason´s research has focused on how the European Union has impacted inequality and the welfare state, as well as how institutional arrangements impact health inequalities within and across nations. He discusses his research with Sigrún, but also more broadly about U.S. politics, the Trump administration and his election. And as Jason is a true friend of Iceland, they briefly discuss what it is about Iceland and Icelandic society that is fascinating.
