    Linking the Macro to the Micro: A Multidimensional Approach to Educational Inequalities in Four European Countries,
    Recent research into educational inequalities has shown the importance of decomposing
    social origins into parental class, status and education, representing economic, socio-cultural
    and educational family resources, respectively. But we know scarcely nothing about how
    inequalities in educational attainment at the micro-level map onto institutional characteristics
    of educational systems at the macro-level, if we treat social origins in a multidimensional
    way. Drawing on the rich over-time variation in educational systems in four European
    countries – Britain, Sweden, Germany and Italy – this paper develops and tests a number of
    hypotheses regarding the effects of the three components of social origins on individuals‟
    educational attainment in different institutional contexts. Our results clearly show that all
    three components of social origins have distinctive and independent effects on individuals‟
    educational attainment in all four countries. But our findings also demonstrate that macroinstitutional
    setups do matter, and changes in institutional characteristics of educational
    systems to some extent reinforce or offset social processes that generate inequalities in
    education at the micro-level.
