Occupational regulation in the EU and UK: prevalence and labour market impacts
27 August 2014
Dr Maria Koumenta recently led a research project for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, looking at the labour market impact of occupational regulation in the EU and UK.
The externally commissioned research examines:
- the extent to which labour markets in the EU have occupations subject to at least some regulation, or restrictions on the ability to practice the occupation
- the extent to which occupational regulation may present a barrier to the ability of EU professionals to work in the UK.
The research also provides a breakdown of estimated proportions of the labour market affected for 27 EU member states.
