Vulnerability in Health Trajectories: Life Course Perspectives. Last issue of the Swiss Journal of Sociology

At the crossroad of sociology of health and life course theory, this present Special Issue of the Swiss Journal of Sociology provides contributions to research on health trajectories and the study of development of health vulnerability over the life course. Editors: Stéphane Cullati, Claudine Burton-Jeangros, Thomas Abel.

This volume brings together six papers based on quantitative and qualitative researches conducted in European countries. These contributions offer empirical evidence relevant for life course theory (Cumulative Advantage Model and Critical / Sensitive Periods Model) and shed new lights on the mechanisms contributing to the development of health vulnerability.
