The internet and inequality have a complex relationship: some parts of the internet reduce inequality, while others amplify existing inequalities and create new ones. Even access to the internet itself is beset by inequality, be that by digital exclusion on the basis of age or wealth, or by persistent unavailability of the internet in parts of the Global South.

Our research critically assesses these inequalities and the structures they emerge from. OII projects consider inequality of all sorts, from that based on gender, to that based on geographic location.
