Topics such as work and employment have been extensively addressed, both through quantitative and qualitative research. We study employment and complement labour market analyses by approaching the social effects of employment: low living standards, inequality and insecurity, physical and mental health problems, postponing life decisions (marriage, children).
A particular concern has been to investigate non-standard forms of work and employment-induced precariousness. The specifics and problems of employment have also led to studies in relation to social inclusion and income inequalities, and vulnerable groups on the labour market (ethnic Roma, young people, people with disabilities, rural residents) have been distinct subjects of employment and income studies).
