Labour market trends and welfare systems are currently among the most important issues debated in the European Union, due to the deep social and economic changes that are taking place. So far, these subjects have been analysed separately, generally neglecting the mutual connections. This project aims at filling in this gap, scrutinising the effects of the emerging atypical working profiles (self-employment, temporary work, tele-work) on the welfare systems in several EU countries. The data, gathered from heterogeneous sources and structured by means of standardised indicators, will be collected in a central database, for a comparative prospect of the current situation and a projection of the expected trends. The final results will be presented at an International Conference to be organised at this purpose.
The project outcome will be addressed to the institutions involved in the preparation and actuation of policies supporting employment and social protection, both at national and European level.
