European Labour Market Under Pressure – New Knowledge on Pathways to Include Persons in Vulnerable Situations (Paths2Include)

PATHS2INCLUDE will expand our understanding of the multidimensional aspects of labour market discrimination, the impact of different policy frameworks, and the gaps and possible need for change on various levels in order to detect mechanisms and processes that shape barriers or facilitate inclusive labour markets in Europe.

Attention will be made on the importance of how context puts people in vulnerable positions within three central labour market processes: recruitment, career trajectories, and work exit. Furthermore, the project will focus on predicting risk factors of vulnerability in the future of work.

We will employ a harmonized cross-national factorial survey experiment and qualitative interviews with employers to gain a better understanding of why and under which contextual conditions barriers are shaped, and how to develop inclusive practices. Moreover, we will use available harmonized data sets to conduct comparative quantitative analyses and microsimulations to generate best practices that promote inclusion in employment and decent work. 

Paths2Include will provide insights on how institutional and contextual factors shape barriers for persons in vulnerable situations. Based on this knowledge, the project will develop proposals for effective policies combating labour market discrimination on the EU labour market.

In addition to Norway, these countries participate in the project: Germany, Romania, Italy, Luxemburg, Spain, Belgium and Poland.
