Comparative Life Course & Inequality Research Centre
The aim of this project is to study how individuals’ educational careers and competence trajectories unfold over the life course in relation to family background, educational institutions, workplaces, and private life events.
The main objective of this project is the analysis of the effects of family forms and dynamics on children’s short- and long-term welfare. In doing so, the work package also investigates how families contribute to the inter-generational reproduction of inequality.
This project aims to describe and analyze the emergence of gender-specific structures of educational and job careers and to compare these patterns across cohorts.
The project studies life courses of persons aged 50+ at the time of the interview. Our results will provide important new insight into the dual relationship between SES and health and will help to understand and to tackle social differences in health.
