Second PROMEBI Summer School

September 4-8, 2017

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).

The school is organised by the research team PROMEBI (Promoviendo el empleo y el bienestar en Europa/Promoting employment and welfare in Europe) at the University of Oviedo, in coordination with the Spanish Network of Social Policy (REPS).

Profs. Rodolfo Gutiérrez and Ana M. Guillen are the academic directors, and Vanesa Rodríguez the academic secretary. The working language of the school will be English
