1st Workshop on (Youth) Unemployment in Europe

1st Workshop on (Youth) Unemployment

April 16 - 17, 2015 - Frankfurt (Oder), Germany

The financial and economic crisis has strongly affected the European labor markets: Employment has suffered, umemployment rates have increased, labor participation rates were under pressure and migration and remigration patterns have changed. However, not all labor markets were affected alike. The heterogeneity of labor market adjustments is in the focus of the upcoming workshop.

In addition to presenting and discussing current issues on these topics among researchers, one discussion will be dedicated to discuss the topic "Temporary work in Germany. Development and reinforcement of industrial relations systems in the German labour market" with academics, but also with representatives of trade and business unions.
