Alexi Gugushvili – Social Origin, Education and Occupation in Georgia

This study aims to investigate the role of ascription in life chances in Georgia by studying associations between individuals’ characteristics they have no control over and their educational and labour market outcomes. Author argues that one of the reasons why the inequalities in life chances have increased in recent decades is the growing gap between educational expansion and occupational upgrade and the resultant inflation of credentials.
