Abstract

Several fields of study engaged with the concept of equality of opportunity (EO), such as philosophy, political theory, ethics, and law. Despite the different conceptions and approaches flourished on EO, the core shared meaning concerns the idea that individuals should have equal prospects for developing their life. This deals with outcome distributions of various types, such as economic capital and work positions, forms of social capital such as social networks and affiliation, and forms of cultural capital such as education (e.g., Lynch & Baker, 2005). A state of EO corresponds to the absence of circumstances (such as family socioeconomic and cultural background, ethnic origin, gender, age, etc.) and related barriers, prejudices, or preferences that influence individual achievements.
