International employment issues

international public policyIn recent years, IES has been working to increase its international project work, often in partnership with research organisations in other countries. Typically, such projects are funded by the EU or its agencies or other international bodies. Occasionally, however, we will undertake projects directly commissioned by overseas governments or public bodies on employment policy topics. As with our UK work, these projects may fall within any or all of the main themes of our public employment policy research programmes. Examples of current project work are summarised below.
