PhD Title

Part-Time Work and Welfare States

Research 

I am interested in the politics of working-time, standard employment and welfare states. In my PhD, I am analysing welfare policy that facilitated and responded to the rise of part-time employment in  Austria and Germany. How particular reforms in unemployment and retirement policy have taken place with what effects for part-time workers, which factors explain these reforms and what extent these institutional adjustments have presented a challenge to the institutionalized Standard Employment Relationship are central questions of this research. 
 
Supervisors: Dr Jochen Clasen and Dr Daniel Clegg
