The Impact of Multiple Discrimination on Professional Carreers


Project summary

With regard to the economically relevant fields of education and the labour market this project aimed to answer the question if multiple discrimination has an impact on professional careers of individuals, and if so, how.

We set on two main questions: 1) Is there a (negative) discriminating impact of intersections on professional careers? and 2) Are there any multiplier effects due to intersections other than in one-factor discrimination, in other words, does the occurrence of intersections lead to other forms of discrimination?

Project results are published in a book and on the project website.
