Higher education policy has increasingly gained a European dimension, with its own distinct influence over national education policies. Against this background, a major project was launched, the REFLEX project, which aims to make a contribution to assessing the demands that the modern knowledge society places on higher education graduates, and the degree to which higher education institutions in Europe are up to the task of equipping graduates with the competencies needed to meet these demands. The project also looks at how the demands, and graduates’ ability to realise them, is influenced by the way in which work is organised in firms and organisations. The REFLEX project has been carried out in sixteen different countries and consisted of a large scale survey among some 70.000 graduates. This report presents the major findings and draws important policy implications.

Durch den stetigen Anstieg der Studierendenquote in Deutschland wird ein abgeschlossenes Hochschulstudium zunehmend zur Normalität und prägt die persönlichen und beruflichen Biographien von immer mehr Menschen.

Dieser Sammelband enthält Analysen aus dem 'Kooperationsprojekt Absolventenstudien (KOAB)' zu den unterschiedlichen Erfahrungen der Absolventinnen und Absolventen mit ihrem Studium und dem Einstieg in den Arbeitsmarkt. Zusätzlich wird thematisiert, mit welchen Ansprüchen Absolventenstudien heutzutage verbunden sind und wie sich die tatsächliche Nutzung im Rahmen der Hochschulentwicklung gestaltet. Das 'Kooperationsprojekt Absolventenstudien (KOAB)', das die Datenbasis für die hier präsentierten Metaanalysen liefert, wird vom International Centre for Higher Education Research der Universität Kassel (INCHER-Kassel) gemeinsam mit rund 70 Hochschulen durchgeführt.

This report examines changes over time among young adults who have experienced particular difficulties in achieving and retaining paid work in the ordinary labour market: youth with family background from non-Nordic countries and youth with disabilities in the Nordic countries. The report identifies processes and mechanisms enabling or preventing the labour market prospects of the two youth groups. The report focuses on policy measures aiming at tackling demand-side barriers to employment for the two youth groups. While available data have not made it possible to determine robust evidence of an effect (positive or negative) of the social regulation policies for the employment of vulnerable youth groups in statistical terms, the report identifies processes and mechanisms through which social regulation policies make a difference.

Over a quarter of a century after the fall of the Berlin Wall and 10 years after their accession to the European Union (EU), Central and Eastern Europe Countries (CEECs) still show marked differences with the rest of Europe in the fields of labour, work and industrial relations. This book presents a detailed and original analysis of labour and social transformations in the CEECs. By examining a wide range of countries in Central Europe, Labour and Social Transformation in Central and Eastern Europe offers a comprehensive and contrasting view of labour developments in Central and Eastern Europe. Chapters explore three related issues. The first deals with the understanding of the complex process of Europeanization applied in the sphere of labour, employment and industrial relations. The second issue refers to the attempt to link the Europeanization approach with an analysis mobilizing the theoretical concept of "dependent capitalism(s)". The third issue refers to the cumulative trends of labour weakening and labour awakening that has emerged, in particular in the aftermath of the crisis beginning in 2007-2008. This book will be of interest to academics, policy makers and stakeholders at European and national level in the EU member states.
