The second part of the article (for the first section see the 26th issue of this journal) examines issues concerning the formation of Lithuanian labour policy in the period from 2001 to 2008. The study reveals that during that period Lithuanian labour market policy was modelled in view of preparing for the European Union (EU) accession stage, harmonising Lithuanian labour market policy with EU normative acts and implementing the common European Employment Strategy (EES). The national labour market policy was also drawn up in line with ‘homework’ assigned by the European Commission (EC) and the aim to create an active, flexible and stable labour market, also one that reflects national interests. The article presents practical and theoretical assessment of the separate stages of Lithuania’s labour market policy development. This article is a continuation of the first attempt to draw up an analytic assessment of changes and management characteristics to labour market development in the re-established Republic of Lithuania.
