Sommario

Employment policies tend to focus on unemployed people, but evidence indicates that many people who are economically inactive also have labour market potential. This report examines groups within the inactive population that find it difficult to enter or re-enter the labour market and explores the reasons why. It maps the characteristics and living conditions of these groups, discusses their willingness to work and examines the barriers that prevent them from doing so. The report also looks at strategies being implemented by Member States to promote the inclusion of those outside the labour market. It highlights that many inactive people would like to work in some capacity, particularly students and homemakers. Stressing the importance of focusing on the specific needs of the inactive population in designing and implementing effective strategies for their labour market integration, the report argues that Member States should fully implement the 2008 European Commission Recommendation on the active inclusion of people excluded from the labour market. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Reactivate: opportunità di occupazione per le persone economicamente inattive

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Per conseguire gli obiettivi della strategia Europa 2020 in materia di occupazione e povertà, è importante che le politiche si concentrino non solo sui disoccupati, ma anche sulle persone economicamente inattive. Secondo la definizione dell’Organizzazione internazionale del lavoro (OIL), le persone sono economicamente inattive se non lavorano, non stanno cercando lavoro e/o non sono disponibili a lavorare. Mentre i disoccupati rappresentano una categoria relativamente ben analizzata nonché l’obiettivo principale di molte strategie occupazionali, altrettanto non si può dire per la popolazione inattiva. Gli sforzi profusi di recente in alcuni Stati membri, tuttavia, dimostrano che anche i gruppi all’interno di questa popolazione hanno un potenziale in termini di mercato del lavoro.
