No. 04, 2007
One of the important ways in which Lithuania implements its employment policies involves co-ordination with the European Unions Lisbon Strategy and the way in which it is being implemented in the country.

Evaluating the Processes of the Information Society in the Context of Globalisation
No. 03, 2007
Globalisation is a suggestive word. It is often used in various ways to describe a phenomenon of a worldwide nature. The term relates to the process of national economies which are becoming integrated into the global economy. This is a measure of internationalisation. It appears through global production networks and the organised marketing of transnational companies. We must not forget, however, that globalisation is still not part of all national economies which are seeking to achieve an identical level. Third World countries in particular are lagging behind the dominant triad of the United States, Europe and Japan.
