The Director of the Lithuanian Social Research Centre (LSRC) Dr. S. Mikulioniene and the Head of the Labor Market Research Institute of the LSRC Dr. B. Gruzevskis
took part in the Lithuanian Demography Forum organized by the Office of the Government of Lithuania on June 21, 2018. LSRC researchers discussed the impact of demographic changes (in particular implications of depopulation and ageing of the population) on the socioeconomic development of the country. They highlighted the need for a highly responsible implementation of tax reform and the improvement of labor market policy mechanisms, given that the number of labor market leavers starting from 2020 (up to 2040, and probably even longer) will exceed the number of new entrants to labor market. S. Mikulioniene and B. Gruzevskis participated in the thematic discussions and made proposals for improvement of social and employment policy.
On 19 April 2018
the First Secretary Tachelle Kirkpatrick of the Embassy of Canada visited Lithuanian Social Research Centre. She met with the researchers dr. Andrius Marcinkevičius, dr. Giedrė Blažytė and dr. Monika Frėjutė-Rakauskienė of the Institute for Ethnic Studies. The researchers presented the latest data collected from the sociological researches performed in the Institute on integration of ethnic minorities, public attitudes polls towards different ethnic, religious and social groups and the results of media discourse on ethnic issues analysis.
