Chapter 1: EU employment in a global context: where will new jobs come from and what will they look like? (2014)
The EU is a strong global economy but, as it emerges from recession, it faces many far-reaching challenges – increasingly specialised trade and production, rapidly evolving technologies, and ever increasing concerns about demographic and environmental challenges. This chapter considers the evidence of where Europe’s new jobs come from, what they will look like in terms of content and skills, and what kind of education, training and support will be required. It foresees growth in high quality jobs that exploit the EU’s comparative advantage, as well as new jobs in the health and care sectors.
EEO Review 2013: Promoting green jobs throughout the crisis - a handbook of best practices in Europe (2013)
This Review summarises the key messages emerging from 33 national articles from the SYSDEM experts on the theme of Promoting green jobs throughout the crisis: a handbook of best practices in Europe, 2013. Investing in the green economy will be key to overcoming the employment crisis in the EU and driving economic growth. In order for the Commission’s integrated policy approach to work an environmental focus needs to be prioritised at Member State level as well. This review looks at whether and to what extent national and regionalgovernments have refocused their policy efforts towards green sectors, and the nature of the policy efforts pursued. The European policy context for promoting transition to green growth is examined and the types of national/regional policies and measures identified, before the findings and lessons are summarised.
