Western Balkans Labour Market Research Network


Our network was established in June 2016 as a Regional Research Promotion Programme (RRPP) project ‘Strengthening the Labour Market Research Network – Toward the Understanding of the Political Economy of Unemployment in the Western Balkans‘, building on existing regional research cooperation initiatives, most notably LSEE Research Network on Social Cohesion in South Eastern Europe.

The key objectives of the network have been to consolidate recent advances in applied labour market research in the Western Balkans, to take stock of the existing data and scientific and policy literature, to identify main data and knowledge gaps, and to create an integrated and yet flexible platform for further research.
