Abstract

Economic Crisis, Quality of Work, & Social Integration: The European Experience provides a cross-national and comparative view of European countries in the period before and after the onset of the Great Recession of 2008. The volume offers an empirical analysis into the ways in which quality of work has been affected by the economic crisis, and its implication for social integration. Economic Crisis contributes towards an understanding of whether and how institutional contexts have mediated the impacts of the crisis on individuals’ work and family experiences.
