Research on work transitions and transnational mobility of young and precarious workers
A WERU member, dr Barbara Samaluk, was awarded the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship tenable for a research project entitled “Aiming for skilled or secure employment on the EU market: a Sisyphean task?”. The project will investigate the process of work transitions and transnational mobility of qualified young and precarious teachers and social care workers. It will expose the labour invested by workers when moving between various work and non-work statuses and geographical and political boundaries and their strategies and choices of channels/intermediaries used in search for skilled or secure employment on the EU market. The context is the socio-economic costs of Slovenian austerity and these are considered through a multilevel and transnational methodological approach which aims to explore the effects on employment, emigration and the relations of transnational exchange.
