Summary/Abstract: This report focuses on two aspects of EU approximation in the area of employment: the first section identifies the key reasons behind the problems encountered with approximation to EU standards in this field, while the following section looks into potential measures and policy solutions that can be undertaken in order to achieve greater progress with EU approximation. The ultimate aim is to get a sense of progress achieved in the area as a case for evaluating the country’s achievements in EU approximation. Considering recent debates about Macedonian progress towards EU integration acquired an emotional overtone as the ‘name dispute’ with Greece became more heated since the beginning of this year. In this light, this is also an effort to bring the debate back to rational and pragmatic terms and assess the effects that government measures have on the lives of ordinary citizens.
