The study “Who Is More Equal? Access to Tertiary Education in Europe” is the output of the second stage of the project “Inequality in Access to Higher and Tertiary Education in the Czech Republic and Other European Countries”, carried out since 2007 by the Education Policy Centre (EPC), Faculty of Education, Charles University in Prague.

The EPC approach uses data gathered in three rounds of the European Social Survey (ESS 1-3), conducted in 2002-2007 in more than twenty European countries. The ESS data enable to analyse the relation between social structure and inequalities in access to tertiary education. The study proposes both the conceptual model and the method, and presents the outcome of the analytical process, the Inequality index, for Europe and 23 European countries.

THE OXFORD HANDBOOK OF ECONOMIC INEQUALITY edited by Wiemer SALVERDA, Brian NOLAN and Timothy SMEEDING has been published by OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS (2009).

The Oxford Handbook of Economic Inequality presents a new and challenging analysis of economic inequality, focusing primarily on economic inequality in highly developed countries. Bringing together the world’s top scholars this comprehensive and authoritative volume contains an impressive array of original research on topics ranging from gender to happiness, from poverty to top incomes, and from employers to the welfare state. The authors give their view on the state-of-the-art of scientific research in their fields of expertise and add their own stimulating visions on future research. Ideal as an overview of the latest, cutting-edge research on economic inequality, this is a must have reference for students and researchers alike. The volume also links to a website full of further reading and methodological annexes to assist with further research in the field. Read more about the Handbook on the Oxford University Press website.

The handbook is a result of collaboration of researchers from the INCDIS Research Group within the Equalsoc network and of the LoWER network.
