Meeting the challenges of economic uncertainty and sustainability through employment, industrial relations, social and environmental policies in European countries – GUSTO

The purpose of this project is to explore the various modes of both policies and the systems of governance that are emerging in different parts of Europe to cope with uncertainty while seeking security, and to appraise their relative success.
Specific attention is given to the changing relationships among employment, social and industrial relations policies and practices in a comparative European perspective, and on their sustainability. This becomes most apparent when we consider both social uncertainties and the environment as related to problems of externality and public and collective goods provision, and when polices and practices in these areas need to be related to the forms of economic growth on which they are likely to be dependent.
