Project Overview

"Only by capturing nuanced interactions between the microeconomic and macroeconomic adjustments that result from globalisation shall we be able to gain a better understanding of the role of welfare state policies in countering the labour market and income inequality effects of globalisation." - Prof. C. Montagna.

The GlobaLabWS project is a three year project funded within the Welfare State Futures Programme of NORFACE

The project focuses on the interaction between the welfare state, globalisation and labour market institutions in determining a country’s aggregate performance, and is part of the Globalisation, Welfare States and Inequalities cluster of the Welfare State Futures programme:
