Analyses inequalities over the life course from early childhood, education, school-to-work transitions, to mid-life careers

Examines how societal shocks, such as the Great Recession of 2007–2008 and the covid-19 pandemic affected social inequalities

Investigates intersectionality of social inequalities according to gender, family structure and migration background

Driving research questions

1. How do local and national opportunity structures enhance, suppress or mediate inequalities?

2. How do changes and spillovers across the life domains and over life course contribute to inequalities?

3. How are inequalities influenced by policies and societal shocks?
