Inequality, early adult life courses and economic outcomes at mid-life in comparative context

Project Details

EQUALLIVES analyzes how education, labor market and family choices interact to structure accumulated advantage and disadvantage over the life course.

We focus on key turning points in early adulthood, examine their interrelation and explore the cumulative impact on individual and group inequalities.

We explore how cross-country economic and institutional differences affect inequality outcomes and life courses.
