Inhoud van de cursus (alleen in het Engels beschikbaar)

The course provides a general introductory course into the multidisciplinary study of the labour market, notably the employment relationship and the way labour market changes (indicated by flexibilization, ageing and automatization), social policy institutions and regulations affect the form and content of the employment relationship at meso-organizational and macro-societal level. The subjects covered in the course include:

  1. the similarities and differences between the various rather distinct labour markets and social models in Europe;
  2. the notion of the inclusive labour market and how the work organization impacts on health and subjective well-being;
  3. the governance of labour markets at various levels;
  4. the rising inequality in pay and access to work;
  5. the social and cultural determinants of ethnic inequality, diversity and access to employment careers on the internal labour market and
  6. the automatization and robotization of the production and its effects on the labour market and the employment relationship.
