Within this project, an annual flagship report on Western Balkans Labour Market Trends is launched. The Report is based on a dedicated regional labour market database for the Western Balkans, established and compiled by wiiw in cooperation with the Statistical offices of the region. It allows, for the first time, to calculate aggregate labour market indicators across six Western Balkan countries and to directly compare them with each other and with select EU peer countries. The Report and Database are available through the SEE Jobs Gateway, a web community of practice for labour market policies in the Western Balkans, managed and maintained by the World Bank. Overall, the initiative aims to provide access to labour market information and data for national policy-makers in the Western Balkans, as well as the international and academic communities. At the same time, it aims to generate interest among the press, NGOs and the wider public and thereby to encourage the debate on labour market policies.
