Double Jeopardy: How Refugees Fare in One European Labor Market

at the start of their working careers in the destination country. With the passage of time, however, refugees are expected to converge to the employment and wage levels of other migrants. The most important reason cited for this recovery process is that the likelihood of returning home is smaller for refugees, as they face a higher risk of harm or persecution and often keep fewer social ties with their country of origin ( Phillimore 2011 ). In view of their prospects for settling permanently, refugees thus have a stronger incentive to invest in the destination

Economics of Artificial Intelligence: Implications for the Future of Work

choosing the right job and career, or as a manager when running daily operations or planning the next factory, we all face constantly and simultaneously complex, interrelated problems for which our natural intelligence seems to have made us particularly well equipped. Indeed, until recently, no machines were remotely deemed to be capable of matching our intellectual capacity, even though the idea of an intelligent machine emerged as soon as the invention of the computer in the 1930s. In 1936, long before the invention of modern, silicon-based computers, Alonzo Church and

Sympathy for the Devil? Exploring Flexicurity Win–Win Promises

might be used as a stepping stone toward more secure working conditions. The analysis of drivers reflecting transitions toward permanent contracts and higher salaries can shed light on this issue. Higher levels of self-employment are also assumed to reflect negatively upon the overall level of job security in the economy. Finally, higher rates of involuntary uptake of part-time and temporary jobs will also be related to higher job insecurity. Employment security refers to the probability of staying in employment during the entire career, but not necessarily in

The remainder of the paper is structured as follows. Section 2 explains the data generation processes for
