Labour market developments in Europe
Latest reports by BSPC & the European Commission
“The EU is the only major world region where unemployment is not falling. The overall unemployment rate of the EU is currently heading towards nearly 10.5 percent, that of the euro area is about 11 percent, the highest rate since the start of EMU.” These facts are just some of the findings of the latest EU labour market report.
Furthermore, the new report recently published by the European Commission shows the EU labour market in an international perspective, labour market developments at country level as well as EU labour market outlooks.
Furthermore, Franz Thönnes, Member of the Bundestag and of the BSPC Standing Committee handed out a report that addresses the transition from the Baltic Sea Labour Network. The report is an output of the latest Baltic Sea Parliamentary Conference (BSPC) in Saint Petersburg and offers a comparative overview of one of the major challenges facing Europe. At the same time details are given of measures taken to combat this by the individual member countries of the Baltic Sea Parliamentary Conference. The author approaches subjects such as working conditions, cross-border mobility and youth unemployment.
The Baltic Sea Labour Network is a flagship project within the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region that is backed and supported by the BSPC.
