research project at dinâmia'cet-Iscte

My research focuses on two topics: labour market segmentation and labour market policies. Regarding the first, I have been researching on labour market segmentation based on age. As for the second, I have been studying the role of labour market policies to fight youth unemployment during the economic crisis and also the role of Vocational Educational and Training on this process.

These two topics are very much related with research line 1.2 because they are focused on labour market issues. On the other hand, my theoretical and methodological approaches are in line with the interdisciplinary focus of the research centre.
