Présentation de la thèse
This study examines the link between certain types of employment and poverty in Europe and the role of unemployment insurance systems in protecting workers. Chapter 1 provides evidence of the link between temporary contract employment and poverty, focusing on the case of Germany. Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 focus on unemployment benefit systems in Europe. Chapter 2 examines how unemployment benefit systems perform to protect atypical workers in case of job loss. Chapter 3 studies the effects of different reforms of unemployment benefits on poverty, inequalities and the labour supply of individuals.
