Edukacja nieformalna a potrzeby rynków pracy w państwach członkowskich Unii Europejskiej
The aim of the paper is to present the possibilities of improvement of labour market quality by informal education in the developed market economies with special reference to the European Union. The analysis concentrates on processes that can be found on both the supply and demand sides of the labor market, with special emphasis on a three-sector structure comprising employment, economic activity and unemployment. The labour market requires the implementation of a series of activities, before the regulatory framework turns out sufficient for its fuller integration, such as: - harmonisation of national labour market regulations; - mutual recognition of diplomas and qualifications; - access to social insurance across the EU. Activities supporting the integration of labour markets are: solutions improving the availability of flats and social insurance. However, the supply of such flats is limited in Europe, due to frequent control of rents. As the period one has to wait to get such a flat is extended, the cross-border mobility of workforce is confined. Another serious bottleneck can be health insurance, if the insurance companies do not start recognising mutual liabilities in various countries. Otherwise, only the young and healthy will migrate. The analysis intends to identify the distance between the above mentioned sectors from their EU counterparts and the directions of necessary adjustments to the EU standards.
