Resumé

This report examines whether EU Member States are converging or diverging with regard to working conditions and quality of work and employment. While the findings reveal a relative divergence in Europe with the joining of the new Member States in 2004 and 2007, the results confirm that the gap is closing and that in some of the older Member States there is evidence of disimprovements in some areas, such as prevalence of work intensity and reduced access to training. Data from four European Working Conditions Surveys is used to compare trends across a fifteen-year time span. An executive summary is available.

    Konvergens og divergens i arbejdsvilkårene i Europa: 1990–2005 - Resumé

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    II 2005 tog Det Europæiske Institut til Forbedring af Leveog Arbejdsvilkårene (Eurofound) hul på den fjerde runde af den europæiske undersøgelse af arbejdsvilkårene, der blev indledt i 1990. I de forgangne 15 år har Den Europæiske Union undergået betydelige forandringer på forskellige planer. Denne rapport har primært til formål at se nærmere på to spørgsmål. For det første søger den med udgangspunkt i de forskellige undersøgelsesrunder at afdække, hvordan konvergensen eller divergensen i arbejdslivskvaliteten har bevæget sig over tid i relative termer. For det andet ser den nærmere på, om der er tegn på lignende bevægelser mellem de europæiske lande i denne periode.
