The aim of the project is to carry out in-depth research of phenomena related to the topic of labor market inequalities, including the context of the Corona pandemic in Slovakia. The basic premise is that the Corona crisis will have high social costs in the form of rising unemployment and poverty and a further increase in social and labor market inequalities. The project aims to identify the state and changes in labor market disparities before and after the Corona crisis, and to analyze how the reactions of actors influenced labor market developments. The project will focus on three related areas: a) typology and mapping of vulnerable groups b) analysis of coping strategies of vulnerable groups and other actors to complex changes; (c) examining policies affecting the labor market position of vulnerable groups. The contribution of the project lies in a comprehensive and interdisciplinary mapping of the consequences of a pandemic on a mosaic of inequalities in Slovakia, and in a comparison to other countries.
