Samenvatting

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.

    Convergentie en divergentie van de arbeidsomstandigheden in Europa van 1990 tot 2005 - Samenvatting

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    In 2005 startte de Europese Stichting tot Verbetering van de Levens- en Arbeidsomstandigheden (Eurofound) de vierde Europese enquête naar de arbeidsomstandigheden (EWCS), die in 1990 voor het eerst heeft plaatsgevonden. In de afgelopen 15 jaar heeft de Europese Unie grote veranderingen ondergaan op diverse niveaus. Dit verslag gaat in de eerste plaats dieper in op twee onderzoeksthema’s. Het heeft in eerste instantie tot doel na te gaan of in de opeenvolgende enquêtes van de EWCS relatieve convergentie of divergentie is opgetreden met betrekking tot de kwaliteit van het arbeidsleven. Voorts wordt ook onderzocht of in dezelfde periode gelijksoortige ontwikkelingen tussen de Europese landen zichtbaar zijn.
