IWM Permanent Fellow János Mátyás Kovács directed the project’s Work Package 2, entitled “Good Jobs” in a “Good Economy”, which looked at the cultural undercurrents of labor markets in two ‘old’ and two ‘new’ EU member states: Spain and the UK, and Hungary and Slovakia, respectively. Members of the research team examined how policy-makers and scholars, as well as employees and workers, think and speak about what makes a ‘good job’. The IWM hosted two international workshops to discuss the Work Party’s findings, which were published on the Neujobs website and in the volume Let’s get to Work! The Future of Labour in Europe, edited by Miroslav Beblavý, Ilaria Maselli and Marcela Veselková.
