Each Eastern European transition country, including Croatia, has experienced a radical structural change of production and employment since 1990. On the one hand, this development was and is internally driven by price liberalization, privatization, creation of financial markets and the restructuring of enterprises. On the other hand, the external liberalization, the enforced international division of labour and the catching-up process to the economies of the EU-15 intensified the transformation of the economic structure. These developments led to a de-industrialization and tertiarization process, whereby the importance of the service sector for the labour market conditions increased. Due to these structural changes, institutional conditions of labour markets had to adjust to new challenges which influence the competitiveness of the Croatian enterprises. The focus in this paper will be on the changes in the employment structure. The measuring of the extent of labour market reallocation takes place within a qualitative framework of institutional characteristics consisting of the theoretical implications of Esping-Andersen (e.g. 1990). This division contradicts the thesis of ‘Eurosclerosis’ that describes the European labour markets as rigid model which is unable to adjust changes in economic environment. In fact, the European labour markets reflect country-specific history and show a low level of integration through different tax and social security systems. Because of cultural and language barriers, low transnational labour mobility is possible (North, 1994). The main hypothesis of Esping-Andersen is that there are in fact three types of arrangements in employment policies.
