Evaluation of measures of active labour market policies in Croatia in period 2010-2013

For: Croatian Employment Service

Researcher: Predrag BejakoviŠ, PhD, Institute of Public Finance, Zagreb

Despite real increases in the scope of, and expenditure on, active labour market policies (ALMPs) in Croatia, they remain insufficiently targeted, in particular as regards outreach to older persons and the low-skilled. Participation in ALMP measures and the level of ALMP expenditure have increased in recent years, but remain quite low. The Croatian Employment Service contracted with the firm Ipsos Puls an external evaluation of ALMP measures in 2010-13, with a view to improving the effectiveness and quality of services and the measures themselves. 

As a part of the project, a final conference was held on Friday, 12 February 2016. The results have been published in the publication External Evaluation of Active Labour-Market Policy Measures 2010-2013. Based on evaluation results, general recommendations were provided. The conclusion is that active employment policy measures were good, but they should be constantly revised. The emphasis was made to provide for financial sustainability of measures in order to avoid discontinuing programs. The measures should be consolidated and the ones for which the interest is poor should be cancelled.
