POSTRADE aims primarily at promoting the development of critical reading and new perspectives over problems that affect current societies, such as: welfare state sustainability, the role of the market and the civil society on social protection, labour market dissolution, quality of life and equal opportunities. The research will therefore be organized around aggregating topics that imply the recognition of the basic rights for a full citizenship: social policies for citizenship, social inequality creation processes, psychosocial risks, social vulnerability and the new configurations in work relationships.
