The regulation of mobility, labour and poor relief in European social policy, c. 1350-1914

Project Details


The main purpose of this sabbatical leave is to:
(a) finish a monograph on the reform of poor relief and regulation of labour mobility in the eighteenth-century Low Countries that builds upon much of the research I have carried out in the past years,
(b) lay the groundwork for the elaboration of a new research line that extends this research topic in spatial
and diachronic terms to the regulation of labour mobility and poor relief in the history of Europe’s long-term transition from peasant to capitalist society, covering the fourteenth to nineteenth centuries – and focusing on the interactions between rural and urban settings of regulation.
