Social exclusion and labour market challenges in the Western Balkans by William Bartlett( )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume focuses on the challenges facing the Western Balkan countries in their efforts to deal with social exclusion and social inequality while making progress in their reform efforts to join the European Union. It examines how states have failed to offer adequate social protection to those excluded from labour market including women, young people, and Roma ethnic minorities, a process that has driven high rates of outward migration. It also provides a detailed introduction to the main conclusions of the various contributions gathered here, and an overview of the lessons learned, w

Labour market adjustments during the crisis and the role of flexibility by Vassilis Monastiriotis( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Research Note seeks to analyse how these diverse country experiences played out in the labour markets of the 28 countries of the European Union. To do so, it relies on a novel application of a standard micro-econometric technique, which allows to 'decompose' temporal changes in unemployment into two broad components: one which concerns mainly the workings of the labour market (specifically, the mix of skills and other individual characteristics that are present in the labour market and the economic significance of these for sorting individuals between employment and unemployment); and one which captures wider influences onto the labour market, including ones that may be related to financial, fiscal and other macroeconomic and institutional factors. Based on this decomposition, it offers an analysis of how the 'external shock' (second component) and 'internal adjustment' (first component) shaped the overall unemployment evolutions in each of the 28 countries of the EU across different sub-periods - from a few years before the eruption of the global financial crisis (2004) until the recent recovery (2016). As a further piece of analysis, the Research Note examines the changes in non-standard (part-time and temporary) and atypical employment (irregular hours, shift-working) during the same period, trying to see how changes in these forms of 'flexible labour' may correlate to the aggregate changes in unemployment as well as to its components as identified here. The analysis reveals significant variations across countries across a number of dimensions: the extent of exposure to the negative shock of the crisis; the timing and duration of the shock; the degree and pace of recovery afterwards; and, most importantly, the extent and type of labour market adjustments in relation to positive and negative shocks. Specifically, - in the period of the crisis, a large number of countries exhibited significant adjustment to the economic shock, which was predominantly driven by changes in how individual characteristics contributed to an individual's probability of unemployment (intensified employment sorting); - still, in a minority of countries this type of adjustment (employment sorting) worked in the opposite direction, intensifying the unemployment change experienced; - in the post-crisis period adjustment dynamics became more diverse, with a larger group of countries exhibiting adverse adjustments and with overall unemployment following different dynamics across countries; - in all cases, adjustment dynamics seem to correlate only weakly to changes observed in non-standard and atypical employment (and thus to the overall extent of what can be called as 'effective labour market flexibility' - Monastiriotis and Tinsley, 2007), while types of adjustment seem to cut across different welfare regimes and 'varieties' of capitalism

Transitions in the EU labour market : structure, crisis and recovery by Corrado Macchiarelli( )

2 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides an in-depth examination of labour market transitions in the EU over the period 2004-16, drawing on EU-Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS) and EU-Survey on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) data. Building on the earlier work of Ward-Warmedinger and Macchiarelli (2014), our analysis offers a detailed insight on how well European economies have recovered from the crisis and whether, and to what extent, their labour markets have returned to their pre-crisis path. In particular, we analyse labour market transitions (a) across the three key labour market statuses of employment, unemployment and inactivity, providing aggregate break-downs by country, age-groups, gender and individual's level of education based on the EU-LFS, and (b) for a more detailed set of statuses that includes, in addition, part-time and full-time dependent employment and self-employment, based on the EU-SILC. Our analysis examines both short term (year-on-year) transitions and the long-run dynamics (steady-state equilibrium) implied by these transitions. We subsequently develop country-specific measures of transition rates and a synthetic index of mobility in order to draw comparisons across countries and over time, as well as examine how country-specific patterns relate to key institutional characteristics, both micro-economic (e.g., EPL) and macro-political (e.g., welfare regimes). This offers a granular overview of labour market trends by country and for the EU as a whole, allowing us to draw conclusions about the functioning of labour markets in Europe with regard to their flexibility (speed/extent of transitions and extent of mobility across jobs) and how this evolved over time since the crisis
