A dynamic approach to europe's unemployment problem

Objective

Labour markets are characterised by continuous pervasive change: huge numbers of job matches break up every year and new ones are formed. European labour markets each year absorb over 30m workers separating from their employers, and re-match them with new ones. The efficiency of this process has implications for the evolution of unemployment in the EU. The dynamic approach to labour markets has proved to be a very fruitful research programme in studying these issues in recent years. This project brings together eight leading institutions from six EU countries to take this approach forward and apply it to the central policy issue of European unemployment.
The teams' work will include analysis of:
aggregate unemployment dynamics,
individual unemployment dynamics,
the role of labour market institutions and international comparisons.
