Abstract

Many humanitarian organisations and institutions have focussed or reducing inequality, end discrimination, promote cohesiveness and ensure that everyone enjoys their fundamental human rights regardless of race, sexual orientation, age and income. What makes it more of a massive undertaking is that there are so many different conceptions of fairness and equality around the world. There is not much information on how different people understand and assign meaning to these terms. This paper aims at moving a step further regarding existing evidence on the public’s attitudes and apply it to the understanding of fairness and equality by Erasmus students and what are the key drivers that shape the said attitudes. It also investigates the implications of their knowledge of building a more equitable society. The key findings were that the key drivers of attitudes were demographic factors (age and political orientation). Other demographic factors, such as gender and income, were not significant. Equality was divided two-fold: equality of process and equality of outcome. The people who saw inequality as a valid issue also supported equality of outcome.
