Aspects of national policy convergence. Labor market experiences of employment in some Balkan states. Case study


  • Nica, Aser


EU expansion has mainly reduced the capacity of Balkan states of adjusting their administrative structures and models promoted by the EU standards. The discussions around this theme are founded on traditions, economic, social, cultural, administrative values of the states in the Balkans in relation to those promoted in Western countries and the EU. Our study on the convergence of the public policy considers the description of how various factors and economic, social and political mechanisms act or compete in mitigating the differences or gaps between entities. Therefore the research attempts to highlight some elements of the convergence of national public policies between Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Croatia in the labor market employment.
