Responding to the Great Recession:Labor Market Policies- Europe and the US

November 19, 2010

Friday, 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

the Center for European Studies

and the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development

are co-hosting an event:

 

Responding to the Great Recession:

Labor Market Policies in Europe  and the U.S.

 

The event will bring together academics, policymakers, and journalists to compare and contrast strategies for helping workers and communities survive economic dislocations, with a special emphasis on European models of "flexicurity" — a strategy that strives to combine labor market flexibility with income security and an active labor market policy — and whether there are elements of such systems that can or should be adapted to help U.S. workers.
