Technology, economic integration and social cohesion

Objective

The project will provide insight into the impact of several important and interrelated developments on social cohesion and exclusion in the European Union.

The issues that will be analyzed are:

- Technological change as the single most important factor shaping the quantitative and qualitative dimensions of the fundamental economic factors influencing social cohesion, such as employment and economic growth;
- Globalisation, broadly driven by technology (e.g. telematics) and by the liberalisation and deregulation of trade and capital flows. This globalisation trend leads to qualitative changes in the form and effects of the exposure of countries to foreign competition, not only in the form of trade, but also through increased foreign direct investment flows.

Several working papers and a policy-oriented report will attempt to make a significant impact on "public opinion" within the group of policy-makers and policy-analysts.
