Abstract

The original essays in this book have been written by a number of leading international experts in the field of labor market studies to honor the intellectual contribution and lifetime achievement of Günther Schmid.
The multidisciplinary contributions, which cover a variety of theoretical approaches, are all concerned with transitional labor markets and labor market policy in the new global economic environment. The authors first address current arguments and controversies regarding appropriate institutions for the formation and implementation of labor market and employment policies. They move on to focus on the policies and problems associated with enhancing gender equality in terms of labor market integration and transitions. Finally, they examine new institutional arrangements that they believe will both enhance the performance of transitional labor markets and improve the management of social risks.
