The area Labour market covers how the labour market functions and is regulated. This includes labour market relationships, labour law and regulation, the social partners of the labour market as well as studies of EU law and how the Swedish model is affected by changes in society.

The area also includes research about matching between education and work, entry and exit from the labour market and obstacles for entry into the labour market. Also issues regarding unemployment, abilities to work as well as methods to reduce social exclusion are evaluated in this panel. Studies of segregation in the labour market, professionalization, wage formation, wage differences, pensions and how demands for qualifications change are also evaluated by the panel.
