Dilemmas of Today’s Labour Market

Centre for Research and Labour Market Studies at the University of Economics in Katowice is pleased to invite you to the seventh edition of the scientific conference “Dilemmas of the Contemporary Labour Market” which will be held on 14 to 16 September 2015 in the “Kocierz” Hotel and Spa in the mountain resort of Targanice.

The conference is organised under the patronage of Prof. Leszek Żabiński, Rector of University of Economics in Katowice, Prof. Kazimierz Frieske, Director of the Institute of Labour and Social Studies, and Prof. Józef Dubiński, President of the Branch of Polish Academy of Sciences in Katowice. The conference will be structured in three plenary sessions and will focus on the difficult issues related to the functioning of the modern labour market in the context of technological development, growing unemployment (also youth unemployment and underemployment), and universal operating principles of modern market economies.

The conference will proceed to publish submitted papers after positive reviews in the “Studia Ekonomiczne Uniwersytetu Ekonomicznego w Katowicach”, which provides a valuable basis for conclusions and recommendations pertaining to the contemporary labour market.
