Governments of economies in transition face formidable labour market problems. This comparative volume contains country studies on Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine. It looks at government responsibilities for employment, improving the operation of the labour market, the range and content of programmes, and financing. An introductory chapter draws comparisons with the Western European experience. This is a rich fund of valuable information for policy-makers, economists and students.
