Languages of publication
An unemployment is a key social-economic problem and its causes have a various character. A very important determinant of unemployment phenomenon on regional and local labour market seems to be a progressive process of economy globalisation that causes structural changes of an international trade. This situation has an unprofitable influence on regional and local economy in countries where is observed a fast rise of importation, decrease of labour participation in a trade or transferring a business activity abroad. The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EFG) was set up in 2006 as an instrument of a financial supporting to trade and regional labour markets in the EU member countries that were particularly offended by effects of global economy changes. Projects that are financed from this fund aim also a remission of negative influence of worldwide crisis 2008-2009 on labour market functioning. The polish regions such as Podkarpacie or Wielkopolska benefited from the EFGG funds. It is noticed that a procedure of financial supporting gain from EFG is very complicated and its simplification would contribute to rise of effectiveness of this instrument in regional labour markets activation.
