Precarious employment in Europe – patterns, trends and policy strategies

Institute for Structural Research contributed to the report on precarious employment and its various forms in Europe which was prepared at request of the European Parliament’s Committee on Employment and Social Affairs.

The growing incidence of precarious employment is a pending problem for many European countries. The financial crisis largely increased the risk of precariousness in Europe. Since the late 2000s, the temporary employment in Poland thrived and Polish workers are increasingly entrapped in so called “junk employment”. The IBS team co-authored the report describing this phenomenon from various perspectives for such EU countries as: Denmark, France, Germany, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, and the UK. Roma Keister, Piotr Lewandowski and Iga Magda elaborated the case study for Poland.
