Resumen del proyecto:

During the 1990s there has been a gradual movement away from on-going employment arrangements toward an increased use 'contingent' employment arrangement. This development seems to be similar in most advanced industrial economies. In relation to research task 2 in the EC-program 'Improving the Socio-Economic Knowledge Base, this development may be one of the most important changes of work, with lasting effects on the quality of life for European citizens in the future, both in terms conditions for life-long learning and changing attitudes to work.

This study aims at understanding the differences in the development of contingent employment in various European countries and the consequences of that development on individuals, work organisation and unions in various industries. The project is designed to be a cross-national, comparative study and is planned to be conducted by means of case studies in users of contingent labour in different industrial sectors in the five participating countries.
