The paper presents main positions of the S.U.P.I.-Research-Group (Social Uncertainity, Precarity, Inequality) for an appropriate research agenda towards Precarity.

Excerpt from the paper:

"The S.U.P.I. network considers it as one of its main tasks to introduce and address questions regarding fragile and precarious employments with the interdisciplinary perspective of the humanities to the EU. The purpose here is to point out that to consider these problems merely from the viewpoint of the social sciences alone could lead to an inadvertent omission of some important functional and methodical dimensions of these issue"
