Final Report - SPREW (Generational approach to the Social Patterns of Relation to Work)

Project ID: 28408
Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS


This is the final report of the SPREW project, which focused on the factors leading to solidarity or tensions in intergenerational relations, in the area of work. The key objectives were to draw out social patterns of relation to work for different generations, including the gender dimension; to study articulations with other societal fields; to develop awareness of public authorities and social actors on the generational dimensions in the relation to work and employment; to draw out guidelines for youth policies and ageing policies in this area.

The document describes the project's objectives and the state of the art, which serves as the research's motivation. Then, the methodological design of the research is analysed, along with the work and progress made for each research aspect and period. The qualitative, quantitative and data collection approach is analysed and then policy practices are reviewed, before ending up with conclusions and recommendations. The project offers valuable insight to policy makers regarding their understanding in intergenerational relations in the area of work.
