The Centre d'Estudis Sociològics sobre la Vida Quotidiana i el Treball (QUIT) was established in 1989 as a research centre within the Department of Sociology and is directed by Dr. Joan Miquel Verd.
The fundamental aim of the research centre is the development and consolidation of a line of investigation that relates the fields of work and employment and everyday life. This is done by taking into consideration both the strategies of individual and corporate actors as well as the context where decisions are made.
Our research centre has taken the initiative of promoting the establishment of a new institute -'Institute for Labour Studies' -within the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. The motivations behind this decision are mostly related to an increasing awareness of the need to consolidate the position and improve the visibility of academic centres in the field of labour, as well as to enhance the quality of research by expanding the research activity to some related areas like labour law, labour economics, political economy.
