Part-Time Work and Welfare States: The challenge to formal norms
I am interested in understanding the processes of institutionalization and de-institutionalization of work norms in welfare institutions. In order to do so, I am analysing proactive and reactive welfare policy with regards to rising part-time work in both their regulatory and normative dimensions in the cases of Austria and Germany. How particular reforms in unemployment and retirement policy have taken place with what effects for part-time workers, what kind of normative negotiations took place and what extent these institutional adjustments have presented a challenge to the institutionalized Standard Employment Relationship are central questions of this research.
