Zusammenfassung

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.

    Konvergenz und Divergenz der Arbeitsbedingungen in Europa: 1990-2005 - Zusammenfassung

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Im Jahr 2005 führte die Europäische Stiftung zur Verbesserung der Lebens- und Arbeitsbedingungen (Eurofound) die vierte Erhebungswelle der im Jahr 1990 begonnenen Europäischen Erhebung über die Arbeitsbedingungen durch. Während dieses Zeitraums von fünfzehn Jahren hat die Europäische Union tief greifende Veränderungen auf unterschiedlichen Ebenen erfahren. Dieser Bericht zielt hauptsächlich auf die Untersuchung von zwei Forschungsthemen ab. Zunächst sollen über die verschiedenen Erhebungswellen der Europäischen Erhebung über die Arbeitsbedingungen im Laufe der Zeit festzustellende relative Veränderungen der Konvergenz oder Divergenz in Bezug auf die Qualität des Arbeitslebens beobachtet werden. Des Weiteren wird untersucht, ob in diesem Zeitraum vergleichbare Veränderungen in den europäischen Ländern festzustellen sind.
