Is COVID-19 embedding or reducing inequality? Inequality in Australia 2020

On the back of the release of Inequality in Australia 2020: Part 1, Overview, ACOSS and SPRC researchers discuss the pre-COVID state of inequality in Australia, the changes wrought by the pandemic, and how current policy decisions give us a unique chance to reduce inequality.
