The project VINE (financed under the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Program) aimed at studying the intersections of gender and economic insecurity. One of the actions that were foreseen in the project was to foster the publication of a special issue gathering studies that focused on gender and economic insecurity in Southern European countries using an intersectional perspective.
Finally, The Intersections of Economic Insecurity, Non-Standard Employment and Gender in Southern Europe is out on the Frontiers website, edited by myself and Christiana Ierodiakonou (University of Cyprus). In the special issue, you will find the following contents:
- Perceived Job Insecurity and Anxiety. A Multilevel Analysis on Male and Female Workers in European Countries, by Anna Bracci and Egidio Riva
- Understanding Patterns of Economic Insecurity for Post-Soviet Migrant Women in Europe,
Irina Gewinner and Stefania Salvino
- The Covid-19 Pandemics: why Intersectionality Matters, by Lara Maestripieri
The editorial The Intersections of Economic Insecurity, Non-Standard Employment and Gender in Southern Europe explains the importance of assuming an intersectional lens when analysing the phenomenon of economic insecurity in Southern Europe, in order to especially highlight the possible impacts of non-standard work on women life. All materials are freely accessible online on Frontiers in Sociology.
