Abstract

My main interest is in the role of education as a factor of inter- and intra- generational social mobility in Greece. More specifically, my interest lies in the exploration of the impact of educational attainment in the life chances and social positioning of people. This is connected with the issue of openness or otherwise of the Greek education system over the last seven to eight decades and the distribution of educational opportunities amongst all students. It also aims to investigate the ‘social fluidity’ and the structures that enable or permit movements of individuals and collectivities across the social hierarchy.
