  3. Promoting Labour Market Mobility in the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation

    19 April 2017

    This report focuses on labour market mobility in the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation, in particular mobility that entails a transition from one region to another within the countries. We will examine how labour market programmes (LMPs) should be designed to promote mobility. In order to identify relevant possibilities, Kazakhstan and Russia have been compared to three Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries. The central idea that the report seeks to communicate is that the two countries can develop their existing labour market policies to create an infrastructure of programmes and measures that facilitate and reinforce labour market mobility.
