The PERHOUSE project deals with the topic of personal household services (PHS). Specifically, domestic work is considered marginal in Central and Eastern Europe compared to Western Europe. The ageing population and the declining role of the welfare state, alongside the marketisation and privatisation of care, are increasing the demand for this type of work in the Czech Republic as well.

However, working conditions in this sector remain unregulated and much of the work is undeclared. What are the implications for workers? What are the implications for the quality of care and services provided? And why should politicians and social partners care about this sector? These are questions that will be discussed in detail during the workshop.
