Labour Market Processes and Structural Change: Allocation Dynamics and Unemployment in the US, Swedish and West German Labour Markets
Who becomes unemployed, for how long and to which consequences? In addressing these issues, the project aims at a comparative analysis of unemployment experiences in three major Western economies. Unemployment is addressed in a dynamic framework and analyzed from a general perspective on mobility processes in labour markets. Cross-country similarities and differences are to be explained mainly from similarities and national peculiarites of labour market dynamics and labour market trends.
