XXIX National Conference of Labour Economics - - Associazione Italiana Economisti del Lavoro
Pisa, Polo Piagge dell'Universit?? di Pisa, Italy
The theme for this year conference is about labour market reforms with a particular emphasis on successful practices implemented in European countries. The Great Recession has destroyed jobs around the world, but has hit more strongly the younger workers: who were the first to exit and are now trying to get a job in a slack labour market. Hence, the challenge European countries are facing is how to tackle the (youth) unemployment problem and avoid a slow and jobless recovery. The (un)employment experience of European countries over the crisis has been quite diverse with some countries coping exceptionally with unemployment, while others are still facing extremely high unemployment rates. While many factors are certainly relevant to explain the different performance of European labour markets, there is evidence that labour market institutions, labour policies, education and vocational training can foster employment and improve the functioning of labour markets. The resilience of Germany??s labour market to the Great crisis is a valuable example which many analysts attribute to the reforms that were implemented (Hartz reforms) in recent decades.
