Labour Market and Social Policies in the Baltic Countries

This review analyses the key issues facing each of the Baltic States - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania -  given its specific economic and social trends. It provides detailed information and policy recommendations in five topical areas: labour law; "active" and "passive" labour market policies; pension reform; long-term care of the elderly; and social assistance benefits as a last resort. This publication is part of the OECD’s ongoing co-operation with non-member economies around the world.
