Häusermann, Silja; Schwander, Hanna (2009). Identifying outsiders across countries: similarities and differences in the patterns of dualisation. Working Papers on the Reconciliation of Work and Welfare in Europe, University of Zurich.



This paper makes three contributions: a) it develops a new conceptualization of outsider-status, based on employment biographies, rather than on current labour market status; b) it proposes a new operationalization of outsiders based on post-industrial class theory and c) it shows empirically who the outsiders are across different countries and across the three dimensions of economic, social and political exclusion.
