SOCIAL RESEARCH ON EMPLOYMENT AND WELFARE INTERACTIONS
Aplication period: April 1 – May 8
In recent years there has been a substantial increase in both quantity and quality of research analyzing tensions between work and welfare, with the aim of identifying trends, institutional arrangements and policies of both spheres that best interact among each other. At a European scale, the objective of improving theoretical, empirical and applied knowledge constitutes a substantial piece of the necessary renovation of the European integration project itself.
The main goal of this Summer School is to make participants familiar with recent and high quality research developments in the field of employment and welfare interactions. The school offers lectures with discussions by renowned international scholars, with prior reading assignments. The participants will be also required to present and discuss their research project (e.g. postgraduate research proposal, in-progress or finished paper).
Who can apply?
The PROMEBI Summer School is mainly targeted at Master and PhD students with a social science background and specific research interest in the field. Participants will be granted a diploma after completing the school. ECTS recognition by the University of Oviedo is expected.
