Laure Doctrinal, PhD student in sociology at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) and the Department of Sociology defends her thesis "Old and Unequal?: An Institutional Analysis of Pension Systems' Driving Forces and Outcomes in Affluent OECD Countries".
The health level among highly- and low-educated people is more equal in countries with a high-quality primary care. For people with low education, primary care can function as a gatekeeper, reducing the correlation between education level and health. This is shown in a new dissertation in sociology from the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) at Stockholm University.
