The Eurozone crisis marked a significant divergence in unemployment trajectories across (groups of) countries, leading on the whole to widening unemployment differentials across the EU. these heterogeneous unemployment paths reflect in a way the different channels via which the crisis was transmitted into different parts of the EU and the different policies that were deployed to redress the resulting economic shocks. This Research Note seeks to analyse how these diverse country experiences played out in the labour markets of the 28 countries of the European Union, relying on a novel application of a standard micro-econometric decomposition technique. The analysis reveals significant variations across countries across a number of dimensions: the extent of exposure to the negative shock of the crisis; the timing and duration of the shock; the degree and pace of recovery afterwards; and, most importantly, the extent and type of labour market adjustments in relation to positive and negative shocks.
As part of the European Semester (the framework for the coordination of economic policies across the EU), the European Commission presents every year each EU countries with a set of country-specific recommendations providing policy guidance on how to boost jobs and growth, while maintaining sound public finances. This study assesses the support that the European Structural and Investment (ESI) Funds have made to the implementation of the country-specific recommendations and structural reforms.

Informal care forms a cornerstone of all long-term care (LTC) systems in Europe and is often seen as a cost-effective way of preventing institutionalisation and enabling users to remain at home. Most recent LTC reform packages have included important components focused on informal carers. The purpose of this study is to explore the range and meaning of policies which ‘formalise’ the role and status of informal carers in a subset of European countries. These schemes, either directed at carers specifically or indirectly through user policies, ‘formalise’ the caregiving role and, to varying extents, treats carers as recognized care providers. The study also attempts to shed light on the relevance of this policy trend for quality of informal care.
