This work package aims to analyse how institutional and policy frameworks moderate labour supply and demand mechanisms under the influence of the four megatrends.
In particular, it aims to identify which institutional settings and market regulations play a role in the likelihood of flowing in/out of various employment statuses or jobs that are only partially covered by the social security system.
Partners will examine which labour market groups are at higher risk of entering and remaining in an inferior job, in-work poverty and in-work deprivation. They will also examine the impact of increased migration on the labour markets of receiving EU countries and on migrants’ work patterns, and the role of policy.
As a result of this work, six research papers will be published that will focus on how product and labour market regulations, bargaining models, unions and welfare policies act as moderators of megatrends. A policy brief on matching in the labour market will also be published.
