In the final session of the event, Miroslav Štefánik, Director of the EU SAV, presented a view on the effectiveness of active abour market policy measures in Slovakia, stressing that measures often have multiple objectives and not all are adequately covered by indicators. Then Igor Liška from the Institute of Social Policy presented an approach for assessing the risk profile of a job seeker in terms of long-term non application to the labour market when he/she is included in the registration.
