Volume 20 Issue 1, February 2014
The articles in this issue of Transfer report the main findings of a research project funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), on The Governance of Uncertainty and Sustainability: Tensions and Opportunities (GUSTO). The project explored the challenges presented by the inevitable confrontation between the process of marketization, which is fundamental to the current stage of Europeanization, and the demand of working families for the reduction of uncertainty in their lives.
