Education is a central component of modern society. Achieving academic success depends not only on a person’s individual abilities, but also on social factors. We investigate the corresponding connections.

Focal areas and research fields

  • Equal opportunities
  • Dealing with diversity
  • The individual and contextual causes of educational inequality
  • Research into values and attitudes regarding equality and diversity
