Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities, of the European Commission monitors employment
trends and policies across 30 European countries (EU 27, Croatia and Turkey, and Norway)

cover information on names, addresses, telephone and fax numbers, website and e-mail
addresses, contacts, the status of the organisation, as well as information on research
methodology, fields and focus of research and recent labour market projects and publications.

social dialogue, collective employment relations, and social protection for workers applicable in the sector, and

Relevance of flexicurity systems for the anticipation and management of restructuring operations: based on a
transnational partnership bringing together researchers and the players from the Belgian and French labour markets,
along with some Dutch experts. The aim of this project is pilot experimentation with systems which help secure the
career transition of victims of restructuring operations at territorial level (employment development areas of Liege in
Belgium and Lille in France) (Article 6 of the ESF, 2005-2007).

Title of the Project : Labour Market Studies of the Ministry of Welfare


Under the national programme "Labour Market Studies" several national projects in 2004-2007 are implemented by the
Ministry of Welfare, the Ministry of Economics and State Employment Agency. Within the project "Labour Market
Studies of the Ministry of Welfare" a scope of studies in the Latvian labour market consisting of 9 components are
undertaken:
Analysis and forecasting of the labour market - a component aimed to analyse the demand and supply in the Latvian
labour market, to identify significant problems in the labour market at present and in the future, as well as to develop
proposals for their solutions. Within the component 5 mutually related studies are under implementation:
Detailed study of workforce and labour market by economic sectors - a study to identify and forecast the demand of the
labour market, the supply of work force by separate economic sectors, as well as to determine the causes for disparities
of demand and supply, to identify alternatives for the solution of these problems.
Professional mobility of workforce - a study to establish the analytical basis and additional information for estimation
of an adequate labour market demand and supply.
Professional activities of graduates from higher educational establishments and vocational training establishments - a
study to determine the opportunities of the graduates to adapt themselves on the labour market according to their
occupation, to identify the obstacles and problems, as well as to get information on alternative vocational career
development tendencies and their causes.
Correspondence of the educational programmes of higher educational and vocational training establishments to the
labour market requirements - a study to analyse and evaluate the compliance of the vocational training and university
education to the labour market requirements, establishing a well-founded analytical basis for an adequate decision
making as regards the promotion of education training programmes for professions required on the labour market.
Long-term forecasting system and analysis of its improvement opportunities - a study to ensure adequate statistic
information to define the labour market demand and supply, to establish and develop analytical and forecasting
methods to ensure the compliance of the labour market supply to the demand both at present and in the nearest future.
Geographical mobility of workforce - a study on the internal and external geographical mobility of work force in order
to increase the efficiency of active and preventive employment improvement activities.
Wages and impacting factors - a study aiming to identify the possible activities for the increase of living standards,
balancing the wage system at a national level and considering the opportunities to subordinate the tax policy to the
promotion of employment.
Specific labour market problems of Latvia and its regions - a study about the ethnic and language skills aspects,
structure of age and gender, as well as monitoring of potential discrimination signals in order to determine the
necessary active and preventive measures and amendments to the laws for elimination of problems.
Optimal and employment-stimulating tax and benefit system - a study aiming to elaborate proposals for the
improvement of Latvian tax policy.
Gender equality aspects in the labour market - a study aiming to elaborate solutions for ensuring gender equality in the
Latvian labour market, as well as proposals to improve the mechanism for coordination of work and family life.
Working conditions and risks in Latvia - a study aiming to identify the situation of labour safety in Latvian companies,
to elaborate proposals for improvement of the legal basis for health and safety at work, labour relations, technical,
medical preventive and organisational measures as well as to contribute to the fulfilment of labour safety requirements
set in the normative acts.
Unemployment and social exclusion: underlying causes and duration - a study aiming to analyse the causes and
duration of unemployment and social exclusion, incl. a low education level as a factor promoting the social exclusion,

Aim of Network This alliance aims at linking applied labour market research as
conducted by OSA with fundamental labour market research
conducted at both universities. The mission of this strategic alliance
is to establish a consortium for both national and international labour
market research.
: The alliance aims at the development of policy relevant statistial
information in the field of soci-economic dynamics on the labour
market.
The aim of the programme proposed here is to provide a critical
review, assessment and account, both theoretically and empirically, of

19 July 2007 Page 145 of 260


flexicurity policies, strategies and arrangements in four north-western
European countries: the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and
Denmark. An international comparative approach is needed to
explore the causal factors and conditions that stimulate (or hamper)
and shape flexicurity strategies and policies.

Aim of Network : The European Industrial Relations Observatory (EIRO) is a
monitoring instrument offering news and analysis on European
industrial relations. A project of the European Foundation for the
Improvement of Living and Working Conditions, EIRO began its
operations in 1997. Its aim is to collect, analyse and disseminate high-
quality and up-to-date information on key developments in industrial
relations in Europe. It aims primarily to serve the needs of national
and European level organisations of the social partners, governmental
organisations and EU institutions.

The European Working Conditions Observatory (EWCO) provides


regular information on quality of work and employment issues in the
EU Member States and at EU level. The Observatory is supported by
an extensive network of correspondents covering all EU countries,
plus Norway. Also contributes to the identification of good practice
examples on a company/worker level. The attractive workplace for all
project aims at identifying pioneer company practices, policies and
agreements and showing how the Lisbon Strategy is being
implemented on the ground at company level

The European Restructuring Monitor is a tool designed to provide a


quick overview of restructuring activities in Europe and their
employment consequences. It provides information on individual
restructuring cases and allows for the compilation of statistics
comparing countries, sectors and types of restructuring. All
information is based on the analysis of daily newspapers and the
business press in the EU27 and Norway
