The 5th International Conference ‘Social Boundaries of Work: Politics and Ideologies of Work’ took place online, on October 28-29, 2020. During the first day of the conference, a separate group session ‘Understanding heterogeneity: the cross-national study of precarious employment’ was organised, chaired by Anna Kiersztyn. During this session, participants of the CNB-Young project team: Danuta Życzyńska-Ciołek, Viktoriia Sovpenchuk, Katarzyna Kopycka, Stefan Bieńkowski, and Zbigniew Sawiński, gave four presentations analysing the methodological and conceptual problems and challenges related to the harmonization of data on employment contracts, precarious careers, and educational attainment from different countries. The presentations were followed by a short discussion of the implications of these problems for CNB-Young.
