Why is it important?

Reporting a survey of undeclared work in five southeast European countries (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Romania and Slovenia), a diverse array of types of undeclared work are uncovered ranging from waged employment to own-account work conducted for closer social relations such as kin, friends and neighbours.


The outcome is a call for greater recognition of the diverse array of kinds of undeclared work in southeast Europe and for a wider range of policy approaches and measures to be employed when tackling such work.
