Esa-rn-genderrelations -- The mailing list of the European Sociological Association Research Network 'Gender Relations in the Labour Market and the Welfare State'


About Esa-rn-genderrelations


This is a long-standing research network of the European Sociological Association. In recent years comparative research projects on these issues have been carried out. However, more communication is needed between researchers not least to focus comparative research on crucial gender issues such as the changing gender composition of the labour force and the development in patterns of female employment, new forms of employment, growing part-time work, gender segregation in the labour market, the changed condition for social citizenship, social exclusion and unemployment in a gendered perspective, and the influence of state and labour market policy on men's and women's social conditions. In this context analysis of EU employment policy and its consequences for equal opportunities of women are also an important research issue.

Activities of the Network:
Initiating and intensifying comparative research with the aims of clarifying theoretical explanations and providing more empirical material for political strategies to improve gender relations in the emerging European labour market;
Establishing research groups and reinforcing contacts between researchers;
Organizing smaller research meetings and conferences.
