- PIEP - Pay Inequalities and Economic Performance

PIEP investigates the relationship between pay stratification and business and employment performance in Europe at the micro level, using newly available comparative economic data to test a variety of hypotheses relating to the role that firms' performance management systems play in the macroeconomy. The project is conducted by a multidisciplinary team of academic researchers with support from the European Commission and in close collaboration with Eurostat and the national statistical institutes. The Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics is acting as hub for the research network and provider of computing resources to the academic team.   http://cep.lse.ac.uk/piep/

 

- PEPSI
Le projet PEPSI est réalisé par le Département d'Economie Appliquée de l'Université Libre de Buxelles (DULBEA) et l'Unité Politique et Services à l'Enfance (UPSE). Il a débuté en janvier 2006 et prendra fin en décembre 2008 et est financé par la Politique Scientifique Fédérale (BELSPO) dans le cadre du programme "Société et Avenir".

Le but du projet est d'étudier l’impact des politiques publiques sur la participation au marché du travail et sur la qualité de l’emploi des parents, tant de la mère que du père, et sur l’allocation du temps entre les parents. Les politiques de garde d’enfants seront plus particulièrement analysées du point de vue de leur accessibilité aux différents groupes sociaux d’une part et du point de vue de la qualité des emplois dans ce secteur. Il s’agira de mettre en évidence la capacité des politiques à relever les nouveaux défis en matière d'emploi et de fécondité auxquels sont confrontés les pays européens aujourd'hui. L’étude vise à montrer la position relative de la Belgique au sein de l'UE mais aussi par rapport à d'autres pays de l'OCDE afin d'identifier des exemples de bonnes pratiques qui pourraient aider à la formulation de recommandations politiques.

- MOCHO

Women's attitudes towards motherhood are at the core of all economic and social problems raised by the decline in fertility rates and the ageing process of Europe's population. The future of the welfare states depends on women's willingness to insure a reproduction function. However, as far as their choice is to take part in paid employment, are public policies adapted towards facilitating the combination between employment and motherhood?

The project I shall continue to describe here below is entitled " The Rationale of Motherhood Choices : Influence of Employment Conditions and of Public Policies (MOCHO) ". It is part of the Key Action " Improving Human Research Potential and the Socio-economic Knowledge Base " of the Fifth Framework Programme of the European Commission. It is a three-year project that has started on the 1st of October 2001 and will run until the 1st of October 2004. Five countries participate in the project. Besides Belgium, the coordinating country, the Netherlands, Italy, Greece and France are involved. http://www.ulb.ac.be/soco/mocho/
