Call for Summer School: ‘Vulnerable groups on the labour market’
1-5 April 2019, AISSR, University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

AISSR organises a summer school on the determinants and consequences of vulnerability across Europe, focusing on vulnerable groups on the labour market. The event will focus on identifying the (combinations) of individual-level characteristics that predict the extent to which people are in a vulnerable labour market position. It employs an intersectional perspective to measuring vulner­ability and pays particular attention to the identification of vulnerable groups in different European data sets. Moreover, the event aims to offer participants an overview of causes and consequences of belonging to a ‘vulnerable’ group on labour outcomes. It targets PhD students and early career scholars and will provide a clear understanding of how to identify and analyse vulnerable groups over time and across countries. In addition, the topic will be approached from a political and organisational perspective by introducing and discussing solutions and best practices in Europe.

Deadline for applications: 22 February 2019
