The accumulation and use of social capital in young people with instability labour trajectories. Also the Matthew effect? – CAPSINES

The CAPSINES project addresses the process by which young people acquire and use relational social capital in the successive transitions along their trajectories. The project will assess –in a framework in which many young people begin their labour trajectories in situations of temporary employment relatively similar– the environments in which the useful contacts to search and access employment are acquired, the type of social capital used in successive transitions and the characteristics of the employment that is accessed to as a result of different types of social capital mobilised.
