As the conference will feature regular sessions on all fields of stratification research (e.g. on intergenerational mobility, education, labor markets, gender, family, migration and ethnicity, economic inequality, poverty, life courses, health and well-being, political sociology, methodology), any contribution relevant to the broad research agenda of the RC28 on social stratification, mobility and inequality is welcome.
