Highlights

This study applies a life course theoretical approach and attempts to understand the different life paths of individuals and groups in
a particular social and cultural context. The life course of each individual consists of different phases that are related to special roles,
activities, relationships, identities and events that change over time and can arise from each other, can be simultaneous but also independent (Elder et al., 2003).

Mayer (2002) identifies four key structures that influence life paths:

  1. social structures,
  2. institutional structures,
  3. culture, and
  4. the ‘traversed path’ of an individual throughout life.

Social structures include class/stratum position, gender, place in the political power structure and available resources (financial, material and social).
