EQUOP is a Starting Grant ERC project (2011), led by Dirk Jacobs (GERME, Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences)

Dirk Jacobs was awarded an ERC Starting Grant to study segregation at school. In most industrial nations, and especially in Belgium, Germany, Austria, and Holland, there is a performance gap between immigrant children and those without an immigrant background. Social and ethnic segregation seems to be one of the most significant contributing factors.
In his research project, Dirk Jacobs intends to differentiate the causes behind this high level of segregation, and show how they manifest in unequal opportunities for immigrant children. The research project also look in to the impact of school resources and different teacher profiles.
