// DISSERTATION PROJECT


Stratification of Education Systems. Upsides and Downsides

The main research question of my dissertation is why do countries show different patterns in the associations of the OED triangle? Comparative literature analyzing social inequality in educational attainment (OE) and educational gradient in occupational attainment (ED) has already considered how these patterns are related to the Stratification of education systems, while such an argument has been mostly disregarded considering the mediating role of education in the intergenerational transmission of occupational attainment (OE).
Additionally, previous studies investigating the effect of Stratification on OE and ED associations mainly suffer from three pitfalls. First, they lack a clear and detailed definition of what stratification means. Second, the macro-level effect of stratification on micro-level outcomes has not been entirely clarified. Third, empirical analyses reveal weak relationships between theoretical concepts and empirical indicants.
I address the abovementioned shortcomings identifying which country-level characteristics must be accounted for in explaining micro-level effects of Stratification, and improving the operationalization of theoretically derived characteristics.
