CONTEXTS OF OPPORTUNITY: EXPLAINING CROSS-NATIONAL VARIATION IN THE LINKS BETWEEN CHILDHOOD DISADVANTAGE, YOUNG ADULT DEMOGRAPHIC BEHAVIOUR AND LATER-LIFE OUTCOMES

 

Growing social inequality is one of the biggest social, economic and political challenges and has increased the importance to understand how inequality in life opportunities is transferred from parents to their children.

CONOPP examines whether children from disadvantaged parental homes make different choices when becoming adults with regard to leaving the parental home, start living with a partner, marrying and becoming a parent. The project further investigates whether these differences in demographic choices in young adulthood  lead to an accumulation of disadvantage in later life, for instance with regard to individuals’ financial situation, social status, or health. A key aim of CONOPP is to test the ‘contexts of opportunity’ hypothesis by comparing countries that differ in the level of inequality. More equal societies may offer individuals more opportunities to abate the adverse long-term consequences of deprivation experienced during childhood. 

CONOPP is funded under the 7th Framework Programme through an Advanced Grant of the European Research Council.
