Our current projects include:
- Disability and employment: Kim Hoque, with Nick Bacon, Cass, and Vicki Wass and Melanie Jones, Cardiff, used WERS 2011 data to explore the impact of High Performance Work Practices on employment and well-being outcomes for disabled people, the impact of the recession on disabled people, and employment outcomes for carers.
- Labour market regulations and migration post-Brexit: Guglielmo Meardi, with funding from the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account and the University of Warwick Impact Fund, started a project with the collaboration of Claire Evans on the potentials of labour market regulations to provide control of immigration after Brexit, including a comparison of other countries outside, but trading with, the EU (Canada, Switzerland and Norway).
