Project Details

Description

The recession of the 1990s did not only change the structure and nature of paid employment but also the structures, forms and ways of how self-employment and entrepreneurship became important in society, not only in Finland but also elsewhere. While we know of the development in women's self-employment during the 1960s and 1990s in Finland, the development during the recession period is to large extent unknown. This project examines the emergence of these new, to large extent unknown trends in self-employment and entrepreneurship and discusses them in relation to changes in the employment and societal arrangements concerning the welfare state, gender and employment contracts.
