New book explores irregularities of working life
The authors take a unique and interdisciplinary approach by combining historical overviews, theoretical pondering, quantitative analysis and ethnographic fieldwork. They show the “big picture” of changing labour market structures as well the ways in which people’s everyday working lives are affected. Furthermore, they explore whether and how institutions, ideas and politics can be used to shape alternative futures.
The chapters of the book concentrate on four main themes: life course and gender in the labour market, varieties of migration and work, new ways of working, and the politics and possibilities of changing work.
The book brings together an international group of scholars who have been part of the Finnish doctoral school for work and welfare studies – LabourNet. Under the leadership of professor Pertti Koistinen, LabourNet successfully educated a new generation of work researchers from Finland. The chapters of the book were written and collected when the doctoral school ceased to exist in 2015.
