Barriers to Roma Employment (UNDP, 2005)

TÁRKI was the UNDP's Hungarian partner for its 2005 project entitled Barriers to Employment Policy Analysis. This policy-oriented research set out to identify the existing barriers to employment facing Roma, and to suggest possible short- and medium-term steps to increase the employability of Roma, relative to other groups. The same research was carried out in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

Higher Education as a Generator of Strategic Competences (HEGESCO) (2007-2008)

The Higher Education as a Generator of Strategic Competences (HEGESCO) project addressed two broad questions: (a) which competences do higher education graduates require in order to be better equipped for labour demand and active citizenship? and (b) how should higher education institutions develop these competences? 


Towards a Lifelong Learning Society in Europe - LLL 2010

EAL-NET (2005-2007)

TÁRKI was the Hungarian partner in the EAL-NET (EuroAlmaLaurea) project. Its goal was to demonstrate the economic sustainability and the viability of a new transnational eRecruitment service aimed at university graduates and businesses. The EAL system was based on a 'graduate record', which every university had already possessed for its own management and administrative purposes (personal data, student career, degree, other specialisations, etc.).

Households, Work and Flexibility (HWF) (2000-2003)

TÁRKI was a partner in the HWF (Households, Work and Flexibility) project, supported by the Fifth EU Framework Programme. Flexibility has long been a topic of debate in Western Europe, and this debate is now coming to the fore in the New European Countries (EU10) as well. In this comparative research, a representative sample survey of the following countries was used: the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, Slovenia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria and Romania. The surveys were carried out in 2001 (N=11194).

WORKCARE (2006-2009)

Social quality and the changing relationship between work, care and welfare in Europe (WORKCARE)

BALKANDIDE (2005-2006)

Study on Social Dimension in the Candidate Countries (BALKANDIDE)

TÁRKI was the lead contractor for this project. In addition to TÁRKI, the consortium consisted of two other institutes: the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS, Brussels) and the Center for Social and Economic Research (CASE, Warsaw).

Study on the Social Protection Systems in the 13 Applicant Countries: Hungary Country Study (2002-2003)

During the preparations for EU enlargement, the European Commission constantly sought to improve its knowledge of the challenges to social cohesion, and of the strategic policy responses adopted in candidate countries to tackle these challenges. An important milestone was the 2002 project to prepare for the accession states to plug into the ongoing process of exchange of good practice within the Union.

Pension Reform and Intergenerational Redistribution in Hungary (2003)

In a generational accounting analysis, we separated the long-term effects of the main components of the comprehensive 1997 Hungarian pension reform. This calculation was later revised and extended using retrospective data in order to quantify intergenerational redistribution in the Hungarian pension system through the complete life-cycles of subsequent generations.
