- 622 Downloads
One core finding of chapter 4 has been the insight that, besides individual determinants, institutional factors, like the organization of educational systems, post-industrial developments, social policies and the national ‘gender culture’, seem to play a crucial role in explaining cross-national variations in occupational sex segregation. In this context, it seems interesting in how far countries can be classified more systematically with regard to occupational sex segregation when such institutional factors are considered. So far, little effort has been made in this regard. Hardly any comparative research ever drew an entire picture of institutional and structural inequalities in the enlarged European Union.
