I am working as researcher at the University of Bremen, Center for Labour and Political Education. My research focuses on the intersection and governance of education, training and labour market policies in Germany as well as across EU countries. I analyze labour market mobility, vocational education and training systems and validation of prior learning applying institutionalist as well as comparative approaches.
The validation of prior non-formal and informal learning (VPL) is central to the EU’s approach of lifelong learning. It is targeted to enhance employability, labour-market opportunities and educational perspectives for individuals disadvantaged in the labour market such as low-skilled, unemployed and migrant workers. VPL is seen and conceptualised...
The article examines workers councils' possibilities of competence management in Germany. We argue that workers councils gain a lot of competences and skills while taking over these positions. Nevertheless, after leaving their position as workers council, they usually do not have a proof of these competences and skills. We therefore present their c...
In this working paper, we theoretically discuss solidarity as a fundament of working relations in light of a globalized and transnational context. Based on these theoretical perspectives, we elaborate how solidaristic action can be analyzed in our project-related places and topics. We define a multidimensional conceptual framework of transnational...

The aim is to strengthen the flexibility of learning pathways to increase labour market transition and mobility across Europe. Key objective is to enhance employability and labour m...

The comparison of different skill formation systems and governance of VET systems are on the one hand of theoretical and on the other hand of practical importance in...
The aim is to examine and map the complexity of solidarity in transnational industrial relations using "soft", non-antagonistic as well as "hard" antagonistic topics. Thus, we will expand systematizations and identify respective (regulative) requirements of various forms and acts of solidarity in transnational working relations. Finally these findings will be translated in more general term so we can understand and teach the fundamentals of solidarity convey them to different stakeholders and multipliers.
The Erasmus+ project Effectiveness of VPL Policies and Programmes for Labour Market Inclusion and Mobility – Individual and Employer Perspectives (EffectVPL) seeks to evaluate the effectiveness of validation programmes in terms of how the recognition of prior learning benefits the individual. The focus thereby will be placed on if and how validation procedures and programmes support individuals’ labour market inclusion, employability and further learning pathways. Through introducing biographical perspectives into the validation process and identifying the role of employers for validation and recognition of prior learning (VPL), the project seeks to enhance the effectiveness of VPL practice in Denmark, Germany, Poland and Turkey. In addition, the project will review the advancement of VPL policies and programmes over the project period.
