Upper-secondary school choices in reykjavík and helsinki

Self image creation, hierarchy and cultural differentiation

What is Upper-secondary school choices?

In this research, we examine the experiences and aspirations of young people entering top-tier general upper-secondary schools in Reykjavík (Iceland) and Helsinki (Finland).

This research is based on Bourdieu’s conceptual framework on the interplay between habitus, field, and the mobilisation of capital in the field of education, which we consider relational in bourdieusian terms
