Abstract

This study will examine the changing meaning and role of education, mainly in the form of educational qualifications, in post-war Greece. Its diachronic scope will allow an exploration of changes in the labour market and the economy and it will enable me to examine the way
they have been articulated with education for three generations of respondents. Instead then of attempting to provide a definitive account of these changes in the last sixty years or so it will rather raise some pertinent questions contextualised in a mixed-methods study in a
provincial Greek town: has there been a pattern in the role that education plays in people’s lives? Who has benefited the most and who the least from these changes? What exactly is the relationship between education and occupational mobility?
