    Project summary

    In this project, we will investigate the role of human capital in shaping inequalities over the life course in three quite different country contexts. We aim to shed new light on the process of human capital formation during adolescence and adulthood. In particular, we address different dimensions of inequality on education opportunities, employment and earnings, how they relate to individual circumstances such as socio-economic background, gender and family arrangements, how they develop over the life course and how they are influenced by the education and welfare systems. We will study these questions across three European countries - France, Norway and the UK - representative of three distinct policy Paradigms. The differences in the extent of inequality and policy context across the three countries will enable rich cross-country comparisons.
