Applicability


Sociology of stratification has been neglected in Croatia in the past twenty years. In the past two decades, Croatia has undergone profound changes; war and transition have brought altered socio-political context, changes of the social structure and unfavorable economic situation. Emerged social diversification has led to very sharp social stratification with almost vanished middle social stratum and the very narrow stratum of the new elite. The consequences are an unequal approach to education and unequal chances at the labor market, with a prolonged situation of social instability. We will identify patterns of intergenerational mobility in different periods (1984, 1989, 1996 and 2004) and conduct analysis of the transmission of cultural and economic capital by comparison of social status through education and profession of our respondents. The data base will comprise researches conducted at the Institute for Social Research in Zagreb between 1984 and 2004: The Socio‐cultural development, The Social Structure and Quality of Life, The Social Structure and Quality of Life in the Transition Period and The Social and Religious Changes in Croatia. The analysis will show Croatian society is characterised by a relatively low degree of intergenerational mobility, with a high degree of social reproduction.
