Central and Eastern Europe: Work, Employment and Societies between Transition and Change

September 10, 2013

The international conference "Central and Eastern Europe: Work, Employment and Societies between Transition and Change" organized by the Université d’Evry-Val-d’Essonne will be held on 21-22 November 2013 in Evry, France.

The objective of the conference is to investigate the state of the art in the research on changes in work and employment in Central and Eastern Europe in the context of the economic and financial crisis, the austerity policy and its effects, the enlargement of the European Union and the intensification of capital and population movements. The main question is what theoretical instruments can explain what is happening in the CEEC region in terms of work and employment. The theoretical debates will be accompanied by examples and illustrations of current empirical research on topics based not only on cases of sectors and companies, but also on macro-studies on the specificities of the CEE tripartism, the phenomena of corruption, etc.

The conference will be followed by a larger event in 2014, co-organised by different French research and higher education institutions in order to make the assessment of the CEEC 25 years after the fall of the Berlin wall.
