This innovative book takes a comparative approach to the social origin–education–destination triangle (OED), looking at the intergenerational transmission of advantage in 14 countries. The intention is to debate the claim that education is the ‘great social equalizer’. The contributors examine the relation between family background, education and occupational achievement over time and across educational levels, focusing on the relationship between individuals’ social origins and their income and occupational outcomes. It will be of interest to academics and students of social policy and those interested in social inequalities and their reproduction over time.

Critical Life Events and the Dynamics of Inequality: Risk, Vulnerability, and Cumulative Disadvantage (CRITEVENTS)
CRITEVENTS is a consortium of researchers from the University of Amsterdam, University of Lausanne, Oxford University, Stockholm University, and European University Institute that studies the impact of two critical life events - job loss and union dissolution - on the life trajectories of adults and their children. It examines two pathways through which these events may produce an accumulation of inequality over the life course: risk and vulnerability. Risk refers to social gradients in the likelihood of experiencing these events, whereas vulnerability refers to social gradients in the impact of these events on economics and noneconomic outcomes.
The project's main objectives are to understand:
- (1) how job loss and union dissolution contribute to the accumulation of disadvantage over the life course;
- (2) what mechanisms explain the (unequal) impact of these events; and
- (3) which work and family policies are effective in targeting these mechanisms in order to reduce inequality.
The project is funded by Norface and led by Thomas Leopold at the UNiversity of Amsterdam.
The EUI node of the project is led by Juho Härkönen.
