International Journal of Manpower (IJM) is pleased to announce a special issue focused on labour market flexibility and spatial (labour) mobility. The special issue will examine different aspects of labour market flexibility, spatial mobility of workforce and its effects on labour market flexibility, factors influencing both labour market flexibility and spatial mobility, role of education and/or life-long learning for certain aspects of labour market flexibility and spatial mobility. The special issue aims to offer a range of economic, social and cultural perspectives on issues of labour market flexibility and spatial mobility in different countries (country groups) during different economic cycles (e.g. booms and crises). Special issue will focus on three main research fields: how labour flexibility is linked with spatial mobility; how formal education and lifelong learning affect labour market flexibility; and how educational and labour policy and different institutional settings contribute to labour market flexibility and mobility during different economic cycles.
- role of human capital in labour mobility processes during different economic periods (e.g. booms and crises)
- interactions between labour market flexibility and spatial mobility
- role of formal education and lifelong learning for certain aspects of labour market flexibility-knowledge and workers' flows in Europe
-``brain-drain'', ``brain-waste'' and ``brain-gain'' in East-West migration.
