Floro Ernesto Caroleo and Francesco Pastore This book was conceived to collect selected essays presented at the session on "The Labour Market Impact of the European Union Enlargements. A New Regional Geography of Europe?" of the XXII Conference of the Italian Association of Labour Economics (AIEL). The session aimed to stimulate the debate on the continuity/ fracture of regional patterns of development and employment in old and new European Union (EU) regions. In particular, we asked whether, and how different, the causes of emergence and the evolution of regional imbalances in the new EU members of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) are compared to those in the old EU members. Several contributions in this book suggest that a factor common to all backward regions, often neglected in the literature, is to be found in their higher than average degree of structural change or, more precisely, in the hardship they expe- ence in coping with the process of structural change typical of all advanced economies. In the new EU members of CEE, structural change is still a consequence of the continuing process of transition from central planning to a market economy, but also of what Fabrizio et al. (2009) call the "second transition", namely that related to the run-up to and entry in the EU.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book deals with a highly topical issue: various labour market impacts of the recent EU enlargement. The book consists of a number of research papers that were originally presented at a seminar. ... the book provides several important new insights about structural change and regional labour markets in Europe. I can recommend it to anyone who is interested in regional labour market analysis with a European focus." (Petri Boeckerman, Journal of Economic Geography, Vol. 12 (4), July, 2012)

"This book collects a number of thought-provoking papers and raises important policy-relevant issues with respect to structural change, convergence, labour mobility and regional labour market policy in the EU that are likely to inspire further research. Furthermore readers ... will find the literature surveys both in the review and in most of the research papers useful." (Peter Huber, Scienze Regionali, Vol. 11 (2), 2012)

"The book's chapters (essays) are able to capture the main issues under discussion, while also providing a comprehensive set of theoretical and econometric methodologies used in the field of contemporary regional economic research. ... The book is useful to all academics, university students of economics - especially labor economics - as well as bureaucrats in international organizations and policy makers and union members interested in these themes. Thus, they can broaden and enrich their knowledge of such important issues of the day." (Alka Obadic, Croatian Economic Survey, Vol. 13 (1), April, 2011)
