LabourNet

The ever present societal change, particularly in the European context the changes in the labour markets and other institutions providing welfare,  requires the training of experts for a number of different institutions. There is especially a growing need for experts in the public administration, national and international organizations, businesses, as well as in teaching and research positions both nationally and internationally. In addition, globalized companies need HR experts with knowledge of national and international work and welfare issues, as well as understanding of the political systems and related standards and regulations.

All of these tasks require strong expertise in comparative research methodology, empirical social research and in understanding and identifying relationships such as that of economic and social development, the interdependency of work and welfare, and the role of labour and other social institutions in the production of welfare—all of which the LabourNet doctoral training program provides.

Work and welfare research is crucial for the work of international organizations and EU programs, in which one of the main goal is social innovation-based economic development and support of the welfare model. Furthermore, many organizations providing public services are involved in the LabourNet doctoral program in order to secure their access to experts now and in the future.


LabourNet doctoral program has reached a goal, if it is measured, for example by the careers of the  graduates, who have gone on to work for, for example,

  • in  universities and research institutes in Finland, Germany, Sweden and the United States and in international organizations such as UNESCO, and ILO.
  • Furthermore, many of our graduates are now in expert positions in ministries and other public research offices.
  • Among the job titles, LabourNet graduates are now working as: Reseacher, Expert, Head-Controller, Senior Advisor, Senior Officer (ylitarkastaja), Developer, Ministerial Advisor, Deputy Mayor and so on.
