Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


This book deals with “shifts in compensation between private and public systems”. With this introductory chapter, we will provide an overview of what we exactly understand to be “shifts” between the two mentioned systems (ii). After having thus identified the phenomenon of “shifts” for the purpose of this volume, we will try to give a general account of what may trigger or drive such shifts (iii), factors influencing the direction of the shifts (iv), and whether it is possible and/or advisable to design an evaluative framework for the topics dealt with in this volume (v). Subsequently, we take the opportunity to give an introduction to the entire “shifts in compensation” programme, including some details on the objectives, methods, and research focus of the programme (vi). Next, the four main research areas of the programme are explained (vii). We then provide a short introduction to the papers in this volume (viii), to the sponsors and participants in the programme (ix) and we end with a word of thanks (x).
