At the Centre for Welfare State Research, we study the transition of European labour markets from different perspectives. Our research covers the historical and political processes underlying change in labour market policies (e.g. job security regulations, unemployment benefits, activation) as well as the outcome level (i.e. changing employment patterns and welfare state generosity). Moreover, we are interested in the political consequences of labour market change. This includes, for instance, the question how changing employment patterns affect political preferences and voting behaviour.
