Thomas Lemieux: I’m honoured to be a recipient of the 2014 Insight Impact Award for my research on the general theme of inequality.

Of course I’m grateful to SSHRC for having supported me throughout my career.

Though different countries are exposed to the same underlying forces of technology globalization, some societies have been much more successful through a judicious choice of economic and social policy to cope with these issues.

I would like to thank the many associates and students who have participated in this research over the years.
