Sažetak

EU citizens are increasingly concerned that today’s young people will have fewer opportunities for upward social mobility than their parents’ generation. This report maps patterns of intergenerational social mobility in the EU countries. It first looks at absolute social mobility – how societies have changed in terms of structural and occupational change and societal progress. Then it turns to relative social mobility (‘social fluidity’) – the opportunities for individuals to move between occupational classes. The story of recent social mobility is explored using data from the European Social Survey (ESS) and findings from Eurofound’s Network of European correspondents across the EU Member States. The report also analyses the current policy discourse, examining to what extent social mobility has been visible on the policy agenda in different Member States and how it has been framed and discussed. It goes on to look at barriers to equal opportunities and policies to promote it. Finally, it focuses on developments in the last decade that could foster social mobility in childhood and early education, school and tertiary education, and the labour market. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Društvena mobilnost u EU-u

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Građane EU-a sve više brine činjenica da današnji mladi imaju manje mogućnosti za društveni napredak u odnosu na njihove roditelje. U ovom su izvješću navedeni trendovi međugeneracijske društvene mobilnosti u zemljama EU-a. Najprije se analizira apsolutna društvena mobilnost, odnosno promjene društva u smislu strukturnih promjena i promjena u području zanimanja te društvenog napretka. Zatim se obrađuje relativna društvena mobilnost („socijalna fluidnost”), odnosno mogućnosti promjene zanimanja pojedinaca. Najnoviji trendovi u području društvene mobilnosti tumače se na temelju podataka Europskog društvenog istraživanja (ESS) i rezultata Eurofoundove Mreže europskih dopisnika diljem država članica EU-a. U ovom se izvješću također analizira trenutačna rasprava u okviru politike, položaj društvene mobilnosti u okviru plana politika u različitim državama članicama te način formuliranja pitanja društvene mobilnost i rasprave o tom pitanju. U izvješću su izdvojene prepreke jednakim mogućnostima i politike za promicanje jednakih mogućnosti. Naposljetku, u izvješću se navode trendovi u posljednjem desetljeću koji bi mogli pridonijeti promicanju društvene mobilnosti u djetinjstvu i ranom obrazovanju, školovanju i strukovnom obrazovanju te na tržištu rada.
