Abstract
The functioning of the labour market has changed dramatically for a majority of people in the Western Balkanes sincethe beginning of the 1990s. Basing on the concept of the transitional labour markets (Schmid, 2006), we enlarge a list of the ILO recommended labour market statuses to describe a “typical statuses” which have appeared in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia during the years of transition. Basing on the set of “typical statuses” we define a list of typical ‘career paths’ with help of the Optimal Matching Algorithm. We describe the ‘successfulness’ of the groups’ ‘careers’ in terms of the labour market attachment (a degree of integration into the regular labour market). We show how the categorization of the ‘career paths’ helps to assess the direction of changes happened through the period of labour market restructure, and gives directions for further employment policies
