In my dissertation project, I focus on safeguarding the stand of living and pose the main/larger-scale question in how far European welfare states view/see gainful employment as a central factor for safeguarding their life standard and social participation. In this context, I concentrate on poorly renumerated gainful employment which is characterized by workplace insecurity/precarity. On the basis of a setting in which different countries are compared, I analyse the influence of labour market oriented measures and how these affect the standard of living. On another level, the comparion of the life standard of the unemployed is the center of my attention. My dissertation project is supervised by Prof. Dr. Peta. Böhnke und Prof. Dr. Henning Lohmann.
