Our experts in labour market policy, Nermin Oruč and Amela Kurta, participated in the regional workshop to present the findings of the Report on the classification of Labour Market Policies (LMPs) in the Western Balkans (WB) and Roadmaps for their alignment with EU practices. The workshop was organised by the RCC ESAP 2 project on October 5, 2023, in Budva, Montenegro.
The report is based on the research conducted by experts from the regional WEBecon network gathered around the consortium led by CREDI. The RCC ESAP 2 commissioned this report to include an analysis of current practices in reporting on labour market interventions and the development of roadmaps for improving statistics for the Western Balkans economies aimed at their alignment with the EU.
The participants at the workshop presented their individual LMP classification and databases’ practices, learned about the Eurostat methodology and requirements, and provided comments to the roadmaps for alignment of LMP databases with those of the EU through peer discussion and practical exercises. The application of the roadmaps developed through this activity is expected to contribute to improved monitoring and reporting capacities of PES in the future, with a possibility for comparative analysis between the economies of the WB region as well as with the EU Member States.
