Employment dynamics in the Western Balkans in the framework of SEE2020
Key strategic actions on employment Build regional capacity for harmonized monitoring of migration and mobility with a view to a gradual lifting of labour market restrictions in the region. Apply modern approaches in labour market governance that stimulate employment, including the flexicurity approach, evidence based policy making, and partnerships for labour market transition. Tackle informal employment through an exchange of information and experiences, improved inter-institutional and intra-regional cooperation and by testing appropriate policy measures. Promote social economy initiatives: setting up a regulatory framework, networking, sharing know-how and identifying good practices.
Labor Mobility An analysis of the existing situation with respect to the mobility of the workforce, including socio-demographic characteristics of migrants by destination, data on remittances, data on duration of migratory spells, and paying particular attention to evolution over time of such variables and other notable trends. A discussion of current mobility/migration policies and applicable laws in each country, and of the institutional arrangements now present to facilitate/regulate migratory flows. Description of job creation and job destruction among sectors of the economy, including an assessment of segments of the labor market which are more likely to opt for migration Establish a consultative process on the potential of regional labor mobility for addressing the employment challenge. Agree on the way forward towards full regional labor mobility in South East Europe
