Our research concentrates on the analysis of trajectories of employment, unemployment, and Poverty, on the examination of relations between social policy, social structure, and income distributions as well as the advancement of quantative methods of empirical social research. Examples for topics we cover in current projects are social and economic consequences of the recent recession, the development of unemployment risks, income dynamics and income inequality, and the impact of social and education policy on intergenerational mobility.
