This report begins by elaborating upon the different factors that appear to influence the degree to which people change employers. It then formulates a number of hypotheses regarding the influence of biographical characteristics, country characteristics, previous job mobility history, job characteristics, job satisfaction, attitudes towards job mobility and previous geographic mobility history. It then examines whether the hypotheses can be accepted, or should be rejected, on the basis of the data. Finally, some recommendations are made regarding policies of job mobility.

This report presents a comparison of national industrial relations systems in the EU25, exploring the differences between individual systems and their effects on the economy. The report is based on the more detailed findings of a research project entitled ‘Quality of industrial relations: Comparative industrial relations country profiles in the EU Member States’, commissioned by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions. The report summarises findings from the country profiles of the industrial relations features observed among each of the 25 EU Member States, which were compiled as part of the aforementioned project. The data include facts and figures, links to sources, along with an overview of the main industrial relations features, actors, processes and outcomes. The aim of the study is to provide a more comprehensive understanding, across national frontiers, of the various industrial relations systems across Europe.

This report sets out a descriptive analysis of the data collected by the Eurobarometer Survey (2005). It examines two key areas of enquiry: geographical mobility and job mobility. Mobility appears to be not always the result of individual choices. Indeed, mobility, particularly job mobility, is often found to be a characteristic of the more vulnerable groups in society.

The EU Member States have been drawing up national employment action plans based on the EU Guidelines for Member States' employment policies 1998 , following the Luxembourg"employment summit" in November 1997 (EU9711168F ). The plans are due to be submitted by 15 April 1998 for consideration at the Cardiff European Council in June 1998. The subsidiarity principle is a key feature of the guidelines both at European and at national and regional levels and because of this subsidiary principle the government of Flanders and the Flemish social partners - like their counterparts in Wallonia (BE9803135F ) and the Brussels-Capital region (BE9803136N ) - are making their own contributions to the Belgian action plan.  http://europa.eu.int/comm/employment_social/elm/summit/en/papers/guide2.htm  www.eurofound.europa.eu/ef/observatories/eurwork/articles/undefined/employment-summit-agrees-limited-package-of-measures-to-combat-unemployment  www.eurofound.europa.eu/ef/observatories/eurwork/articles/undefined-working-conditions/walloon-region-makes-contribution-to-federal-governments-employment-plan  www.eurofound.europa.eu/ef/observatories/eurwork/articles/brussels-capital-region-releases-its-employment-plan
