    Pallier la pénurie d’entrepreneurs 2017 - Politiques de l'entrepreneuriat inclusif

    Pallier la pénurie d’entrepreneurs 2017 est la quatrième édition d’une série de publications qui examinent la manière dont les politiques publiques à l’échelon national, régional et local peuvent soutenir la création d’emplois en encourageant la création d’entreprises et le travail indépendant auprès des personnes issues de groupes sociaux défavorisés ou sous-représentés. Ce rapport montre que la lutte contre le chômage et la stimulation de l’inclusion sociale pourraient être considérablement renforcées en promouvant l’entrepreneuriat au sein de pans de la population telles que les femmes, les jeunes, les seniors, les chômeurs et les migrants, si les problèmes spécifiques auxquels ces parts de la population sont confrontées sont traités et si les politiques en faveur de l’entrepreneuriat sont ouvertes à tous. Cette édition contient des chapitres de discussion thématiques sur la qualité du travail indépendant, y compris sur ses nouvelles formes, telles que le travail indépendant dépendant et le faux travail indépendant, ainsi que sur le potentiel du travail indépendant en tant que mécanisme d’ajustement dans la restructuration des grandes entreprises. Chaque chapitre thématique traite des enjeux et défis politiques actuels et formule des recommandations à l’intention des décideurs politiques. Enfin, les profils nationaux mettent en évidence les tendances récentes observées en matière d’entrepreneuriat au sein des groupes sociaux cibles, les principaux défis politiques et les mesures politiques récentes dans chacun des 28 États membres de l’UE.

It presents the main achievements in the countries reviewed, along with common trends and policy challenges, and provides insights into the effectiveness and efficiency of waste, materials management and circular economy policy frameworks. As the selected reviews were published over a seven-year period, information for some countries may be more recent than for others. Nevertheless, the policy recommendations emerging from the reviews may provide useful lessons for other OECD countries and partner economies.
