Inequalities #45

In this episode, Alice speaks with Dr. Javier Gonzalez, the Director of SUMMA (Education, Research and Innovation Laboratory for Latin America and the Caribbean), an affiliated lecturer at the University of Cambridge, and an associate researcher at COES (Center for Social Conflict and Cohesion Studies) in Chile.

They talk about failed Meritocracy, on the basis of the recent report he published called “Divergent Trajectories: From the Higher Education Promise of Social Mobility to the Reality of Graduates in the Labour Market. He explains that social class of origin matters for incomes later in life even where individuals pass through the same institutions of higher education and actually social class becomes increasingly important over time.
