A presentation by Dr. Niccolo Durazzi (University of Edinburgh).
This event is part of the Social Policy Research Colloquium.
Collective skill formation systems – most commonly associated with the dual apprenticeships of German-speaking countries – have been traditionally able to combine economic efficiency and social inclusion. Yet, de-industrialisation and the rise of knowledge economies are increasingly undermining the socially inclusionary nature of these systems. As a response, various policy measures have been put in place across countries to counter these exclusionary dynamics. The talk proposes a theoretical framework to study the politics underpinning reforms aimed at increasing social inclusion in collective skill formation systems and employs case studies of recent reform episodes in Austria and Germany to illustrate the theoretical framework.
