Abstract

In this study, the importance of certain subjective variables in the aspiration towards intergenerational social mobility were examined, by using logistic regression, according to data from the PACT project. Each factor is understood as an “argumentative tool” to which the choices of the young students interviewed may be “anchored”. What stands out, other than the specifics of the individual national contexts (Italy, France, Germany, and United Kingdom), is a disparity which still seems to characterise the system of aspirations in lower social classes, together with their objective condition.
