Authors

Jul 2014

Summary

With disparities in national unemployment rates reaching record levels,
the debate on fiscal stabilisers in Europe has gained new momentum. Can
a European unemployment insurance scheme help to absorb asymmetric
shocks and bring about the desired level of macroeconomic stabilisation?
What should such an unemployment benefit system look like? The
contributions to this Forum explore the benefits expected from a
European unemployment insurance scheme and discuss the difficulties in
establishing such a policy.
