The essays in this book have been written by a number of experts in the field of labour market studies to honour the intellectual contribution and lifetime achievement of Gunther Schmid. The multidisciplinary contributions, though not based on a common theoretical framework, are all concerned with transitional labour markets and labour market policy in the new global economic environment. The authors first address contemporary arguments and controversies regarding appropriate institutions for the formation and implementation of labour market and employment policies. They move on to focus on the policies and problems associated with enhancing gender equality in terms of labour market integration and transitions. Finally, they examine new institutional arrangements which they believe will both enhance the performance of transitional labour markets and improve the management of social risks. Combining a theoretical approach with empirical research and a strong policy emphasis, the book should be of interest to economists, political scientists and academics in the fields of labour market theory and policy.
