Patterns of Roma Employment in Europe

April 22, 2014

A new policy brief has been published by CPS Researcher Vera Messing in the frame of the NEUJOBS project.

This Policy Brief summarises the outcome of the research conducted over an 18 month period on Roma employment and labour market policies aimed at the Roma unemployed in five EU member states (Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Spain). It builds on three phases of Work Package 19 of the FP7-funded NEUJOBS project, entitled Policy puzzles with Roma employment. The aim of the research, as well as the present Policy Brief was to look at labour market policies – their targeting, outreach, design and functioning in the local arena – that try to improve labour market opportunities for the Roma population and analyse them against the most important causes that determine low employment of this population group.
