Project Description

Given that some 60% of the world’s working population have their main employment in the informal sector, this PhD thesis will focus upon employment in the informal economy and seek to identify the motivations underpinning the decision of people to work in the informal economy. Recent years have shown that not all do so out of economic necessity and that many other reasons exist for doing so. This PhD will examine the motives for doing so in one particular country and/or among one specific group of informal workers (e.g., in the construction or agricultural sector)
