Slavnic’s studies have been disseminated at a range of national and international conferences and workshops among other at FSF (Association of small business) meetings and at the conferences of the EU programme Equal , in Stockholm (2003, 2004, 2005). Globalisation, Informalisation and Decent Work Agenda, Branka Likic-Brboric (NIWL) The project addresses the issues of EU enlargement eastwards, industrial restructuring, flexibilisation of labour markets and welfare state reform as well as socio-eco- nomic impact of new migration patterns and their linkage to informal economy and policy responces (Likic-Brboric, 2004, 2005). She presents an overview of the problems related to industrial restructuring in former socialist countries and different policy approaches. She discusses elements of the enabling institutional framework for the inclusion of social and employment policies in support of sustainable industrial restructuring and the European social dimension. This entails charting the global and transnational policy discussion on irregular migration and informalisation of the economy and the possibilities for the inclusion of a ’decent work agenda’ into the formula- tion of the EU enlargement strategy and migration re- gime. Likic-Brboric is involved in a wide cooperation with researchers in Europe (especially Eastern Europe) and USA. She is, in the context of NIWL’s SALTSA pro- gramme, the scientific coordinator of an international project concerned with irregular migration and the infor- malisation of labour (see Section I, 2.1.1). Subthematic programme II: Ethnic conflict, citizenship and social reconstruction in post-communist Europe The programme has analysed issues of European devel- opment with special focus on EU integration and the ‘post-communist’ development in Eastern Europe. Beside the ongoing project on the national identity, civil society and ethnic relations in Ukraina, most other studies have been concentrated on former Yugoslavia. The contemporary history of this part of Europe illustrates how state- and nation building projects, complicated by infected ethnic relations, hamper reconstruction in areas of citizenship, economy, welfare and democratisation. Reconstruction in the Balkans and the emergence of new nation states, have been in focus in several empirical studies following up on the work by Schierup (1999) 13 . The Balkans have obviously huge problems connected with e.g. the reinsertion of displaced populations after ethnic cleansing. One of part of the study adresses op- portunities for return to Bosnia-Herzegovina from the point of view of both contemporary development in B&H 13 Schierup, Carl-Ulrik (red. 1999) Scramble for the Balkans: Nationalism, Globalism, and the Political Economy of Reconstruction, Houndsmill: MacMillan

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
