research interests and academic background

Bastian Betthäuser’s research focuses on social inequality, how it accumulates over the life-course and how it is transmitted across generations. More specifically, he investigates:
- how different dimensions of individuals’ socio-economic background shape their early development, education, labour market position and life chances;
- through with micro-level mechanisms these different social background characteristics affect important social outcomes and whether and
- how education and labour market policies and social interventions at the meso- and macro-level can limited the extent to which individuals’ life chances depend on their social background.
