POSTRADE aims primarily at promoting the development of critical reading and of new perspectives on problems that affect today’s societies: welfare State sustainability, the market and the civil society roles on social protection, fragmentation of labour markets, demographic evolution, global environmental change, quality of life and equality of opportunities. To this end, the research is therefore organized around aggregating topics involving the acknowledgement of the basic rights for a full citizenship: social policies for citizenship, social inequality production processes, psychosocial risks, social vulnerability and the new labour relations configurations.
