Abstract

Unemployment has reached historic lows in most Western Balkan countries, but remains higher than in EU countries. Unemployment continues to decline, with the region experiencing a significant decline in long-term unemployment from 1.5 million in 2011 to 776,000 people, or 10.5 percent of the labor force, in the second quarter of 2018. However, unemployment and self-employment remained significant a challenge in the Western Balkans, where levels were two to three times higher than in the respective EU countries. The paper follows the trend of market development and market movements in the six Western Balkan countries, which includes Macedonia. The comparison is based on data on labor market indicators for South East Europe (SEE). The purpose of this paper is to highlight the general situation data and provide guidance on how the labor markets in the Western Balkans have evolved over the past year, namely employment and self-employment, with a focus on the Macedonian labor market.
