The research project aims to analyse the changing linkages between employment and social protection systems in Europe by developing a multi-level and comparative approach of employees' structure of income and firms' wage strategies. Confronting a macro-soc ial perspective with a micro-social analysis, the research explores the levels of variety and evolution of the work-welfare nexus central to wage relations. A first objective is to compare across European countries changes in job, wage and income structure s for employees between 1994 and 2000 using statistical data from the European Household Panel. A second objective is to analyse firms' practices in pay package and welfare provision within different societal contexts in two key sectors of activity. Outcom es of the research are expected to contribute to European research on job quality, changes in work and social cohesion, and to enrich an original comparative and trans-disciplinary analytical framework which has been elaborated by the fellow over the last post-doctoral research. This two-year research project would to be implemented within a French host institution and supported by a two-year employment contract.
