Resolving Precariousness: Advancing the Theory and Measurement of Precariousness across the paid/unpaid work continuum

Project description

Redrawing the paid/unpaid work continuum

The idea that a job is for life is a thing of the past. Employment is becoming flexible and more people are working independently, either by choice or necessity. There are also several types of unpaid work such as care work, work as a precondition for welfare payments, and the newly emerging gig (or digital platform) economy. The traditional dichotomy of paid (productive or waged) versus unpaid (reproductive or unwaged) work is marginalising unpaid work. The EU-funded REsPecTMe project will study this distinction, rethinking precariousness on the paid/unpaid work continuum. It will propose a new theoretical model, as well as a new measurement approach and monitoring tools for precariousness at the European level.
