research projects underway at IER
New book on aesthetic labour
Drawing on research by the authors, the book examines the hiring and management of workers based on their looks and the consequence for workers who fail companies’ looks policies.
New IER working paper on gender gaps in working conditions
The gender pay gap is well researched. This new paper by IER's Honorary Professor Rafael Munoz de Bustillo Llorente and his Spanish team adds to that body of research by examining the non-monetary gap in working conditions by gender. Using the European Working Conditions Survey, it explores gender differences in working conditions by different dimensions of job quality and across countries.
