European Human Capital Index: The Challenge of Central and Eastern Europe

The second volume of our widely acclaimed European Human Capital Index focuses on Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Turkey. In a one-of-a-kind analysis, the authors explain why the region must urgently upgrade its skills base and fight its brain drain, if it hopes to sustain the rise in prosperity and living standards of recent years.

The study strongly recommends investing heavily in human capital, in particular for the “lost generation” of people 45 years and older.
