News Webinar

Upcoming webinars in September and October

The Precarious Work Research Consortium (PWR) is inviting you to a series of online webinars during September and October leading up to the PWR-EUPHA pre-conference in Berlin.

The aim of these webinars is to start building the grounds to establish a platform for researchers and labor market statisticians seeking a common, actionable definition of precarious and non-standard employment. This platform will work to establish guidelines for collecting and reporting data in national statistics, building on results from the PWR research program and previous work by others.
