The employment crisis and the Welfare State in Portugal: Deterring drivers of social vulnerability and inequality

The employment crisis and the Welfare State in Portugal: Deterring drivers of social vulnerability and inequality

EmployALL aims to characterize the employment and social protection crises in Portugal, in the context of the EU, and the reciprocal impacts between those two interdependent crises, focusing on how the private finance sector tends to occupy áreas of eroded public provision.

It will identify the drivers of inequality stemming from the mentioned crises and elaborate public policy instruments that, by acting upon critical drivers, may prevent or reverse the level of social inequalities.

The project will draw on an interdisciplinary methodological framework and use quantitative and qualitative methodologies at distinct analytical and spatial scales.

The research team envolves researchers from different scientific backgrounds and institutions.

EmployALL will overcome an existing gap in knowledge, offer novel insights for the international state of the art, and contribute to the design of public policies that may significantly decrease inequalities in Portugal.
