The 4th Changing Employment Research Paper in the series has now been published and is available to download for free. The paper entitled "The quality of jobs: the role of job security and the broader institutional context in European comparative case studies" written collecively by Theme 3 - Pedro Mendonca, Julia Kubisa, Laurens Deprez and Pille Strauss-Raats
The paper explores workers’ experiences of job quality in two economic sectors: manufacturing and knowledge industries. Drawing on comparative empirical research from three case studies in Poland, the UK and Belgium, it highlights tensions between the EU aspiration for ‘more and better jobs’ and the flexible strategies of companies reacting to market pressures
The Research Paper Series has been developed to encourage debate and disseminate activities associated with the network. The central remit of the Research Paper Series is to explore and encourage debate on the changing nature of employment in Europe in the context of challenges, threats and opportunities for employees and employers.
The network would like to invite contributors from within and out with the network. You can find out more about the research paper seminar series under the research section of the web-site.
