The discussion about the technological change and labour markets in Europe - June 25th, Warsaw.
The World Bank report Growing United: Upgrading Europe's Convergence Machine analyses the impact of technological change on labour markets in Europe. It argues that the convergence of opportunities for people and firms across the EU is needed to upgrade Europe’s convergence machine.
