The 16th Spanish Congress of Sociology took place from June 29 to July 2 2022 in the city of Murcia under the theme “Inequalities, borders and resilience. Sociology for global crises”. It was organized by the Spanish Federation of Sociology and the Department of Sociology of the University of Murcia.
Notus has participated presenting a paper based on the results from the Spanish fieldwork on the Involve project. On Friday July 1st, Pablo Sanz presented the paper, written together with Joan Antoni Serra, ‘Participation of social partners in the governance of the dual vocational training system: comparative analysis of Catalonia, Basque Country and Andalusia’.
The paper analyses and compares the evolution of the participation of social partners at different levels of governance of the dual vocational training system in three Autonomous Communities from Spain (Catalonia, the Basque Country and Andalusia). At the methodological level, a qualitative approach based on semi-structured interviews with representatives of trade unions, business organisations, companies and political managers is used. The results reveal the existence of different governance models with important implications for the participation of social partners and, to a lesser extent, the distribution of roles between trade unions and business organisations.
