WP5 within the GESI project is dedicated to assessing the influence of personal networks, as well as local and trans-local social ties, on an individual’s life chances. It aims to measure the effects of both strong and weak ties within and between geographical areas and examine how they impact various aspects of life opportunities.
The specific objectives of WP5 include:
- Investigating the role of personal networks in shaping educational, occupational, and social opportunities for individuals.
- Exploring the influence of local and trans-local social ties on mobility and social integration.
The research aims to identify potential strategies and interventions that can address disparities and promote equitable opportunities across different geographical areas.
