    Conference - Warsaw, Poland
    Atypical work refers to employment relationships not conforming to the standard or "typical" model of full-time, regular, open-ended employment with a single employer over a long time span. The purpose of the LMO conference, co-organised with the Polish Ministry for Labour and Social Policy, is to examine these kinds of atypical employment and various EU level and national level attempts to deal with them. What has been done? Have the desired effects been reached? What are the future challenges?

  • Conference - Brussels, Belgium
    Active labour market policies aim to improve the functioning of the labour market, notably by matching the unemployed or those with difficulties in the labour market to vacancies or jobs or by enhancing their employability with a view to future employment. However, during the crisis job creation and active labour market policies were largely affected by austerity measures.

    LMO conference on the labour market participation of people with intellectual impairment or relational problems
    Conference - Brussels, Belgium
    The labour market in Europe is changing. Employers are placing increasing demands on their employees. Lifelong learning is now a top priority concept in the EU. At the same time CEDEFOP forecasts point towards a reduction in the number of low-skilled jobs in the European economy in the years to come. Most employment analyses are based on general indicators and give only limited consideration to less-privileged groups. The Europe 2020 headline target of an overall employment rate of 75% could theoretically be achieved even with some less-privileged groups having extremely low employment rates, as there are no subgroup-specific targets. The low-skilled jobs that are available are in many cases occupied by immigrants who tend to outcompete other less-privileged groups here.

  • Quality Jobs for Youth: are we asking too much? - 20.4.2012
    Joint conference EESC/Labour Market Observatory and European Youth Forum
    Conference - Brussels, Belgium
    Is there a need for more (or for less) flexibility on the labour market in order to help young people access the labour market? Are the stable contracts of past still possible or are precarious internship type jobs going to last years ahead? What are the employer and employee relations developing into? Is self-employment a good solution? Is flexicurity (still) the watchword? What effects (for the individual and for the society) does being a so called “NEET” have? These are some of the questions which the conference seeks to answer.
