Analyse changes and trends in the labour market is a key element to designing policies capable of generating more and better jobs. In notus-asr we study the labour market paying particular attention to the analysis of the quality of employment and existing inequalities, especially those related to gender and age. Through a multidisciplinary approach that includes specialists in quantitative and qualitative methodology, we strive to produce knowledge that can be politically useful.
Industrial relations are a defining element of the European social model which allows the collective regulation of employment relations. In notus-asr we research industrial relations at European and national levels, highlighting the importance of a comparative perspective. Our intention is to generate knowledge that can strengthen and make social dialogue and collective bargaining more effective at different levels.
Some of the projects in this area are:
