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.

Maia Chankseliani – Spatial Inequities in Higher Education Admissions in Georgia: Likelihood of Choosing and Gaining Access to Prestigious Higher Education Institutions

The paper draws upon the findings of a mixed-methods study on spatial disparities in higher education access in Georgia. Examination of quantitative data on approximately 118,000 applicants, a purposive sample of households and policy-makers reveals geographic inequalities in university choice-making and student destinations. It can be argued that rural students who apply and gain admission to less prestigious HEIs, may benefit from tertiary education to a lesser extent than urban students.
