The International Labour Organization and the World Bank released a new online data tool and a joint report with the first comprehensive stocktaking of countries’ jobs-related policy responses to the recent global financial and economic crisis, covering 55 low-income and middle-income and 22 high-income countries.
In its report on the “Global Employment Trends for Youth 2012”, the ILO examines the continuing job crisis affecting young people in many parts of the world.

(Employment Working Paper No. 106)
The Global Employment Trends 2012 takes stock of labour market developments and emerging challenges as the world continues to struggle to forge a sustainable recovery from the global economic and jobs crisis.
Published every two years since 1999, the KILM is a collection of 18 key indicators of the labour market, ranging from employment and variables relating to employment (status, sector, hours, etc.), the lack of work, the conditions of work (wages, compensation costs, working poverty, etc.) and the characteristics of jobseekers, (education, labour productivity). Taken together, the indicators give a strong foundation from which to begin addressing key questions related to productive employment and decent work.
This volume offers an in-depth analysis of the state of employment in the world today, providing a detailed and comprehensive picture of the serious challenges faced by today's policy-makers...
Though labour market regulations have been blamed for the poor economic performance of many developing countries, the evidence on which this argument rests is weak. Rather than constraining economic development, labour market institutions, including the laws that regulate the labour market, are important for both economic growth as well as the well-being of the workforce. Through a survey of different labour market institutions in developing countries, this volume reaffirms the importance of labour market institutions in this era of globalization.
This book argues, with case studies contributed by outstanding national experts, that the flexicurity approach is the most relevant for Central and Eastern European countries and suggests appropriate reforms of economic policy, institutional framework of the labour market, labour market policy and education and social policies in this region.
