Their session will include a brief overview of the firm and then you will work on a real case, so you can get a feel for the type of work you would be doing there. The workshop is based on real case of German labour market in times of global financial crisis of 2008-2009. They will provide participants with the key economic and social indicators to analyse trends in the economy, business environment and labour market and invite them to brainstorm on possible actions government should undertake to improve the situation and increase employment. The main objective is to help participants understand fundamentals of labour market policies and active labour market policies in times of crisis.
