There is a growing realisation internationally that successful employment strategies hinge on the ability of policy makers and institutions to create synergy with other spheres of policy. High employment rates require that active labour market policies play in tune with benefit systems and policies, lifelong learning policies and economic policies. In Europe, there is a widespread call for reforms to enhance the mobility and flexibility of employees without jeopardizing the income security of citizens, and administrations look to each other for inspiration and ideas.
However, policies that prove efficient in one country or region may well be counterproductive in another. National administrations and institutions need tools to combine inspiration from other countries with robust evidence-based knowledge about the situation in their own country. International and European policymakers need analyses and policy recommendations that address national specificities as well as generic challenges and opportunities.
