Tensions between work and welfare: Balance and future prospects at the dusk of the Lisbon Strategy

University of Oviedo, 20 – 28 July 2010


The school targets PhD-students who have started or are about to start a project related to welfare and labour policies in Europe and/or the renewal of the Lisbon Strategy. Topics that will be addressed are the comparative analysis of welfare state and labour market reform/adjustment, EU activities in the social policy field, tensions between work and family life, quality vs. quantity of jobs issues, current challenges for pensions and health care systems, social and labour integration of migrants, income mobility and economic inequality, the role of collective bargaining in reconciling work and welfare, and the impact of the financial crisis.


The Summer School offers lectures with discussion, assignments and workshops given by European scholars from various disciplines such as sociology, social policy, political science and economics. In addition, students will have the opportunity to present their PhD-projects and to discuss them in small groups with other participants and scholars. In sum, students take part in lectures, excursions and discussions.


Participants will most likely obtain 3 ECTS for the Summer School. This is being negotiated with the University of Oviedo (decision will be known in early March 2010).

Applicants are kindly asked to submit (via e-mail attachment):

  • a short description of their PhD-project (no longer than 500 words)
  • their CV and personal motivation to attend the Summer School (no more than 500 words)
  • a letter of recommendation from their supervisor

The deadline for application is May 10, 2010
Please, send your applications to
