Academic, scientific or professional interest: This Master’s degree fully adapts to the current needs of our social reality. On the one hand, the problem of unemployment in our country is basically structural, presenting during the last three decades unemployment rates much higher than those of other European Union countries. This weakness worsens in times of crisis like the current one, where the main adjustment variable that has been used in the productive units has been employment, which has reduced it considerably, while other countries in our area tend to modify a broader set of variables. Right now the emerging social issues related to employment and the lack of it, in particular the demands in the field of inequality and social protection, and action on social exclusion caused by the lack of employment, especially in particularly vulnerable groups, require the training of specialists in employment, the induction and activation of employment initiatives linked to the territorial productive reality and its potential, and the development of employment initiatives with a public orientation.
