Abstract

In this article some recent studies published by Dutch or Flemish authors on social inequality and class are discussed. In the Netherlands two main ‘schools’ are identified: the so-called ‘Dutch stratification school’, which has its roots in modernization theory, and a ‘Rotterdam’ school (that actually is not a school at all). The article outlines some of the main strengths and weaknesses of both schools. After a discussion of recent Flemish studies of Hans de Witte, it is concluded that in theoretical and methodological perspective these Flemish studies are somewhere between the ‘Dutch’ and ‘Rotterdam’ school. It is then concluded that Dutch stratification research in general would benefit if both Dutch schools would more collaborate and learn from each other.
