Polish labour market has improved substantially over the past 20 years, but still over 6 mln people remain jobless. In the face of the population ageing, labour force participation will have an increasing significance both for the economy and also for individuals – due to the level of retirement benefits in the future.
The aim of this seminar is to share the results of research that aims at assessing various employment barriers in Poland and Europe. Speakers will include: Herwig Immervoll
(OECD), Rafał Janas
(DG EMPL), Iga Magda
(IBS, SGH) and Paweł Kubicki
(SGH). In the second part of the seminar we will discuss the potential effective policy response, with a particular focus on Poland. Panellists will include: academics, representatives of central and local governments and NGOs: Lech Antkowiak
(Warsaw Labour Office), Piotr Błędowski
(SGH), Ewa Flaszyńska
(MRPiPS), Cezary Miżejewski
The seminar will be held in the European Commission Representation Office in Poland (Jasna Str. 14/16a, Warsaw) at 18th of June between 9:30 AM and 1:15 PM. The seminar will be held in Polish and English, with simultaneous translation provided.
