The Social Consequences of Labour Market Flexibilisation in Different EU Countries
Labour market flexibilisation during the last decade has been discussed as a crucial measure to enhance economic growth and combating high unemployment within continental European countries. In this project we investigate the consequences of labour market flexibilisation for individuals and societies as a whole, enlarging the narrow economic perspective towards social and societal aspects.
- What consequences go along with deregulating employment relationships
- for work careers and individual life courses, for entrapment in economic precariousness, poverty and for other social risks?
- for the society at large in terms of rising social inequality and the erosion of social cohesion?
