Welfare systems and labour market policies for economic and social resilience in Europe

WeLaR is an interdisciplinary research project examining the impact of four megatrends – digitalisation, globalisation, climate change and demographic shifts – on labour markets and welfare states in Europe. We aim to improve the understanding of the individual and combined effects of these trends on the labour market and thus on the welfare state, and to develop policy proposals fostering economic growth that is distributed fairly across society and generates opportunities for all.
