Sustainable Labor Policies

Shaping the labor markets of the future and their institutions

We provide insight for shaping the labor markets of the future and their institutions. This area is concerned with regulatory frameworks and conditions that serve the balancing of interests of employers and employees, and avoid unemployment. It explores how to organize worker protection as boundaries of firms and national labor markets increasingly vanish. We evaluate instruments for the social protection of workers, focusing on those who need special support to cope with the changing world of work.
