Austerity and Gender Inequalities in Europe in Times of Crisis

Ein Vortrag von Cristiano Perugini (Universität Perugia) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 31.1.2017
Zeit: 10.00 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

The great recession, and the countercyclical responses by European governments that followed, triggered an extensive wave of fiscal adjustments. The implementation of these austerity measures, although underpinned by a widespread consensus, underwent severe criticism. While their effects on output and employment have been extensively investigated, their impacts on wage inequality have received relatively less attention. In this paper we focus on the consequences of austerity measures on gender wage inequalities. After having described the literature-based conceptual framework of our analysis, we provide empirical evidence on the effects of austerity measures on: (i) the adjusted gender wage gap; and (ii) the patterns of gender horizontal segregation. The analysis covers the group of EU-28 countries in the years from 2010 to 2013. Results show that austerity measures (both tax-based and expenditure-based) impacted significantly on various sides of gender wage inequality, putting at risk the relatively little progress achieved in Europe so far.

The specific systemic problems of innovation systems in post-socialist innovation systems

Ein Vortrag von Niclas Rüffer (ifm, Universität Mannheim) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 14.2.2017
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

We analyse knowledge and technology transfer in the regional innovation system of a low performing Polish region in comparison with international best practice cases in Germany, the Netherlands, England, and China. We study inter-sectoral, intra-sectoral and tri-sectoral collaboration patterns of the subsystem of the triple helix (the scientific subsystem, the political subsystem, and the business community). We identify comparatively low levels of trust and social capital as central factors hampering cooperation in the Polish region confronted with the international best practice cases. We propose to introduce the analysis of trust towards public sector entities (including research institutions) and of social capital in the analysis of innovation systems in post-socialist countries.
