when 1 April 2019 - 5 April 2019
language English
duration 1 week

The summer school 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 datasets. Moreover, the summer school aims to offer participants an overview of causes and consequences of belonging to a ‘vulnerable’ group on labour outcomes. It will also 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 organizational perspective by introducing and discussing solutions and best practices in Europe.
