The European Commission is pushing ahead with its European Pillar of Social Rights package to ...

The labour market in sweden is performing well: In 2016 the country had the highest overall employment rate in the EU and below-average unemployment. Of all European countries, Sweden has accepted the highest proportion of refugees in relation to its population.

In Estonia, during the recovery from recession, the employment rate increased almost 10 percentage points (p.p.) to the level of almost 77% and the unemployment rate decreased by 10 p.p. to the level on 7%. Active labour market policies played an important role here as Estonia succeeded in adjusting active labour market services to meet the needs of the labour market. As a result, Estonia’s employment rate is one of the highest in the EU and their unemployment rate one of the lowest.
