Tsinaslanidou Paraskevi

The present study examines the impact of the immediate educational family environment on individuals' educational achievements, focusing on the comparison of the effectiveness of the distinct European social protection systems. To achieve this, primary data are drawn from Rounds 1-8 of the European Social Survey for 24 countries and the upward mobility index and the Bartholomew and Prais-Shorrocks mobility indices are calculated. Key findings of the paper are the high intergenerational educational mobility of the social-democratic welfare states and the extremely low mobility of the Southern-European welfare regimes.
