Gender and occupations
IP206 (former IP6)
Project leader: Nicky Le Feuvre
IP206 aims to develop an interdisciplinary theoretically innovative perspective on gendered aspects of the life course that enables us to clarify the conceptual insights to be gained from the term “vulnerability,” as compared to more frequently used concepts (e.g. social exclusion, poverty, precariousness). We are particularly interested in analysing the possible hiatus between objective resources and lifestyles and the subjective perception of vulnerability; in the ways individuals or groups perceive themselves as being at risk of being unable to achieve their desired objectives and goals, both in their professional careers and in their personal/intimate lives.
During Phase 1 (2011-2014), this project was entitled "Vulnerability at the interface of professional and family life: Gender and occupational differentials" (IP6)

The DAISIE project (Dynamics of Accumulated Inequalities for Seniors in Employment) explores the gendered impacts of policies and practices aimed at extending working life (EWL) in five contrasting national settings (the Czech Republic, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK). It is funded by the transnational research programme “Dynamics of Inequality Across the Life-course: structures and processes” (DIAL) in the framework of NORFACE (New Opportunities for Research Funding Agency Cooperation in Europe)
The “Musicians' Lives” study focused on musicians in Switzerland. The objective was to better understand their personal and professional careers, as well as their individual and collective experiences related to this occupation.
