Guest editors Liza G. Steele and Nate Breznau put together a special issue theme, calling for manuscripts of original research that examine attitudes or public opinion about inequalities pertaining to socioeconomic status, class, race, ethnicity, nationality, immigration status, gender, or sexuality, particularly as they pertain to social policies or the social welfare state. We welcome submissions using a variety of empirical methods. Regarding geographic scope, studies may be global, or specific to regions, nations, or sub-national areas; and we welcome comparative studies and those looking at changes over time.
