Vera-Toscano, Esperanza; Rodrigues, Margarida; Costa, Patricia – European Journal of Education, 2017
Empirical evidence suggests that educational attainment nurtures people's social outcomes and promotes active participation in society and stability.

Wielemans, Willy – European Journal of Education, 1991
