Geography of new employment dynamics in Slovakia

We published a new report on the geography of new employment dynamics in Slovakia. The report focuses on regional socio-economic developments in Slovakia from 2013 to 2020 and draws attention to likely impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. It presents evidence on Slovak labour market conditions, business demography, education trends, and population and migration dynamics, focusing on recent trends in the knowledge economy (KE) in the country. The report also summarises the development of policies and institutions in the relevant areas vis-à-vis the recommendations of international organisations. The findings of the report point to high territorial segmentation. The Bratislava region, in particular, stands out with high values for KE indicators, favourable labour market and socio-economic conditions, and a positive population dynamic in comparison to other regions in the country.

The geography of new employment dynamics in Slovakia builds upon the ESPON EMPLOY project that evaluated regional indicators related to the labour market and education, migration and population dynamics, knowledge economy (KE) incidence, and socio-economic context in the EU Member States.
