Optimal Spatial Allocation of Labour Force and Employment Protection Legislation (EPL)

institutional variables regarding mobility of workers within the EU. His results conclude that lifting labour market restrictions incentivises inflows of workers from new member states, although to a smaller extent than accession to the EU itself. On the other hand, A. Arpaia ( Arpaia et al., 2016 ) analysed whether the movement of labour force within the Eurozone is an adequate tool to counteract asymmetric shocks. He contends that, although unemployment and activity rates absorb most of the shock, the responsiveness of labour mobility and wages to asymmetric crises has

Local planning attitudes: Comparative content analysis of municipal director plans of shrinking Portuguese cities

perimeters have certainly been contributed towards not only by the solidly evidenced population decrease, but also by the PNPOT that now spills on to the reformed legal framework of the spatial management instruments. It promotes flexible planning, reinforcement of the PDM as a strategic tool, and development of cities through urban regeneration. Several innovations are relevant in this regard ( MAOTE, 2015 ): rational definition of urban areas based on supply and demand of urban land, and economic and financial viability (DL No. 80/2015, Article 69), privileging urban

Capacities of African-oriented Polish NGOs: a quantitative approach

its laissez-faire approach: the government does not interfere in the activities of non-governmental organisations, but nor too does it provide systemic support for building their capacity to implement projects ( Kozek et al., 2016 ). Criticism concerned both the dependence of Polish assistance on Ministry of Finance subsidies, and on the organisation of competitions without adequate tools for capacity building ( Center for Economic Development, 2013 ). In one year, organisations must apply for, raise funds for their own contribution towards, implement, and settle

Selected aspects of water and sewage management in Poland in the context of sustainable urban development

purification technologies ( Tortajada, Nam Ong, 2016 ; Salgot, Folch, 2018). The environmental aspects of water and sewage management mainly relate to the quality and parameters of potable water ( Ekiye, Zejiao, 2010 ; Wang et al., 2009 ; Coombes et al., 2016 ), and its impact on the natural environment ( Haase, 2015 ; Herslund et al., 2018 ). The socio-economic aspects of water and sewage management focus on efficiency ( González-Gómez, García-Rubio, 2008 ; Zarghami, 2010 ). They also relate to the development of practical tools for measuring and improving water
