P.I. of the project Making Benefits Work. Characteristics and Effects of In-Work Benefits in Different Welfare State Contexts



Jan Brülle currently studies systems of public benefits to employed households with low earnings in comparative perspective. In this research project – funded by the DFG – he collects data on in-work benefit systems in countries of the European Union and analyses their effects on life courses, labour markets and income distributions.

He studied sociology and empirical social research at the University of Mannheim and the University of Collogne. He finished his dissertation on poverty trends in Germany and Great Britain in 2017. Between 04/2014 and 03/2016 Brülle worked for the project "A comparative analysis of working poverty in Israel and Germany" (PIs: Markus Gangl and Asaf Levanon [University of Haifa]). Between 06/2018 and 08/2019 he bas been employed within the ERC project "CORRODE: Corroding the Social" (PI: Markus Gangl).

Jan Brülle's research focuses on social inequality, labour markets, social policy, and the empirical analysis of longitudinal data.
