The MAKErS Chair – European Minimum Wage
The objective of this project is to provide a transversal analysis of the implementation and effects of a European minimum wage. The significant disparities in the labor market raise questions about how a minimum wage could be implemented, and what its effects on the labor market would be.
Two main axes, based on a multidisciplinary analysis (economic, sociological, legal), are thus analyzed :
- The governance of the European minimum wage: the question here concerns which level, which actors, and which processes would allow the optimal implementation of a minimum wage in Europe
- Analysis of objectives: the European minimum wage has economic and social objectives (reduction of distortions of competition, of inequalities and poverty).
Thus, the objective of this project consists on the one hand in multidisciplinary research on the European minimum wage, and on the other hand in setting up dedicated training in Master degrees on legal, economic, and sociological issues related to the minimum wage in Europe.
