The European growth models on the crossroad This book combines demand-led growth models and the institutionalist approach, in order to explain the macroeconomic performance of the main European countries in recent years. Then we will provide a coherent explanation of the institutional change since the Great Recession, including the economic policy response to the economic and financial crisis (2008) and to the debt crisis (2010). Our analysis includes the reaction of the European institutions and eight case countries studies: France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom.
The objective of this project is to analyse time use differences across job-seekers and the interactions between transformation in job opportunities and the distribution of works and times. Specialized literature demonstrates, on the one hand, that previous crises have caused an intensification of women’s work, undermining their job-seeking opportunities and possibilities. On the other, that those individuals with more time, flexibility and mobility capability, obtain better results. As a result, it is essential to analyse the employment crises and the transformation in gender relation from a time use viewpoint. We aim to test how employment changes are affecting and accelerating the emergence of new relations and gender roles and the so-called new masculinities. Additionally, we will show whether this phenomena is reacting to different variables such as age, educational level or habitat and could affect individual relations to employment and to the decision to start a family.
