Conference: Fragmentation? The future of work in Europe in a global economy
Datum: 08.10.2008 - 09.10.2008
In 2005, the European Commission funded a ground-breaking research project, Work Organisation Restructuring in the Knowledge Society (WORKS) to investigate these changes in depth. Combining theoretical work and a detailed analysis of a wide range of statistics with in-depth case studies, the team have analysed the forces that bring about these changes, including global value chain restructuring and the policy environment, and have produced a series of publications highlighting different aspects of these changes: in work organisation, employers? use of technology, skills and knowledge requirements, career trajectories, occupational segregation and the quality of working life.
At this important international conference, these results will be presented and subjected to the scrutiny of leading European policymakers and experts from around the world.
