Abstract

While restructuring is increasingly acknowledged as an inherent characteristic of economic development and receives substantial policy attention at European and Member State level, the regional perspective on it is rarely discussed. However, most large-scale restructurings affect the regions and employment areas where they take place, not just the company and its employees. Based on secondary data analysis, a literature review and five in-depth case studies, this research project aims to identify the effects of large-scale restructuring at regional level. It also describes examples of successful regional management directed at maintaining and improving labour markets and living conditions following an important restructuring event. The case studies created under this research project are available on demand from Eurofound. Requests should be directed to Irene Mandl, Research Manager, ima@eurofound.europa.eu. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Ефекти од преструктуирањето на регионално ниво и пристапи за справување со последиците

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Иако преструктуирањето сè повеќе се препознава како неразделива карактеристика на економскиот развој и добива големо политичко внимание на европско ниво и на ниво на земјите-членки, сепак регионалната перспектива за тоа ретко се разгледува. Меѓутоа, повеќето опсежни преструктуирања имаат влијание врз регионите и областите на вработување во кои се случуваат, а не само врз компанијата и нејзините вработени. Врз основа на анализата на секундарни податоци, прегледот на литературата и пет детални студии на случаи, овој проект има за цел да ги утврди и разгледа ефектите од опсежното преструктуирање на регионално ниво. Исто така, во него се опишуваат примери на успешно регионално управување насочено кон одржување и подобрување на пазарите на трудот и условите за живот по значаен настан на преструктуирање.
