Mapineq investigates how causes of inequality differ across local, regional and national levels, and across life time and cohorts.
Mapineq studies inequalities in different life spheres such as education, family and labour market, and the interdependence between them.
Mapineq analyses inequalities over the life course from early childhood, education, school-to-work transitions, to mid-life careers.
Mapineq examines how societal shocks, such as the Great Recession of 2007–2008 and the covid-19 pandemic affected social inequalities.
Mapineq 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?
