I am highly interested in employment and social policies, especially the labour market position of 'atypical' groups. Usually, I place this interest in the setting of European Social Policies, and I have gained a good track record in researching the European Semester. Moreover, my research looks at youth (un)employment, fixed-term work, part-time work and flexicurity.
My teaching focuses on European social policy, European labour law, Comparative and European Employment Relations. Moreover, I organise study-trips to the EU Institutions in Brussels. EU courses have been developed as part of my Jean Monnet chair, with the support of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
Current projects include:
- WorkYP - in-work-poverty - EU Horizon2020 project
- My courses on EU social policy are developed within the framework of my Jean Monnet chair, with the support of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
