Work, Economy and Welfare

The research group on Work, Economy and Welfare explores the relationship between trends in modern welfare states, resource allocation and changing labour markets. Group members' work focuses on both the political and institutional drivers of policy development and on social outcomes. Much of the work conducted is cross-national and/or comparative in nature.
