Who We Are

Center for Insecurity and Inequality Research
The Center for Insecurity and Inequality Research (CIIR) is devoted to understanding the causes, consequences, and interconnections between insecurity and inequality with a focus on the economy, energy, the environment, food, health, housing, jobs, and social location. Inequality is the uneven distribution of resources across different social positions and statuses. At its core, insecurity is the gap between actual and expected conditions for living a healthy and fulfilling life, which is tied to different types of inequality. CIIR is located in the College of Arts and Sciences at Oklahoma State University.

What We Study

CIIR supports cutting-edge research on insecurity, inequality and their intersections in service to OSU’s land-grant mission to extend critical knowledge and expertise in, while also proposing solutions to, society’s most pressing problems.
