The economic, financial and sovereign debt crises and subsequent austerity measures underline the need for a more integrated approach to employment and social policy. This review merges two previous European Commission reports on these areas. It begins with an overview of the current European employment and social situation before looking at recent shifts in Europe's job structure and in income inequality. The review then examines patterns of poverty and social exclusion in Europe and the phenomenon of in-work poverty. Issues of active ageing, intra-EU labour mobility and the impact of enlargement are also covered. The review is available in English only.

As a result of the economic crisis, unemployment has increased across Europe, leaving many people in need of financial support to avoid falling into poverty as well as help to find a new job. In response to the high levels of unemployment brought about by the recession, European countries have increased expenditure on LMPs, including both ALMPs and passive measures providing income support, such as unemployment benefits. This European Employment Observatory (EEO) Review summarizes the key messages emerging from 33 national articles on the theme of ‘adapting unemployment benefit systems to the economic cycle’ which were produced in July 2011 by the EEO network of SYSDEM experts. The summary provides a discussion of unemployment and expenditure on labour market policies in Europe using data collected at European level; the different unemployment benefit (UB) systems and labour market incentives in place across the 33 countries covered by the Review; the different reforms to UB systems implemented across Europe during the economic crisis; and the national responses to the reform priorities identified in the Europe 2020 Framework. This publication is available in printed format in English, French and German.

Tässä esitteessä kerrotaan, miten strategia toimii ja millaisiin haasteisiin sillä on vastattava. Siinä kerrotaan myös, mitkä tahot auttavat parantamaan työllisyyttä ja koulutustasoa ja vähentämään köyhyyttä EU:ssa vuodelle 2020 asetettujen tavoitteiden mukaisesti.

Produced annually by the Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities, the Employment in Europe report is now in its 22nd year. It has become one of the main tools of the European Commission for supporting Member States in analysis, formulation and implementation of their employment policies. Employment in Europe 2010 begins by assessing EU labour market adjustment since the onset of the economic crisis, taking account of the crisis’ impact and future prospects. It also analyses EU and Member State policies aimed at mitigating the effects of the crisis and supporting recovery, and looks ahead to their gradual phasing out. The Report then examines the need to reduce segmentation in labour markets and improve the job situation of young people before drawing conclusions on the way forward. This publication is available in printed format in English only. Please note that the “Employment in Europe 2010” report is now also available as a user-friendly, navigable html version.

Self-employment makes a considerable contribution to the EU economy in terms of entrepreneurship and job creation and accounted for almost 15% of total employment in the Union in 2009. However, it also carries a degree of risk and EU-level policies have been developed over a number of years to support self-employment and small and medium-sized enterprises. Such measures have been stepped up in the light of the economic crisis and its impact, both at EU- and Member State-level. The European Employment Observatory Review for 2010 on self-employment in Europe provides an introduction to the self-employment situation in Europe including the impact of the economic crisis, its role in the labour market, attitudes towards the subject and problems faced by the self-employed. The Review then assesses national labour market policies and crisis recovery measures and examines the quality of self-employed work and actions to improve this, before providing some final conclusions. This publication is available in printed format in English, French and German.
