Jürgen Jerger and Michael Knogler are the guest editors of the current issue's thematic part on "Informal Labour". Tatiana Karabchuk and Natalia Soboleva reveal the impact of informal employment on subjective well-being in European countries by examining the differences between countries through their employment protection legislations. Vassilis Monastiriotis and Angelo Martelli investigate the individual characteristics associated with nonstandard and informal employment in Serbia, and their changes over time (2008-2011). Ana Luleva surveys the mountain resort of Borovetz in Bulgaria and focuses on the dynamics and interrelationships of formal and informal practices of women in the tourism industry in the post-socialist period. Árpád Töhötöm Szabó presents the phenomenon of traditional reciprocal work (the kaláka) in rural Transylvania (Romania), offering insight into changes in the everyday conceptions and practices of work and thereby on the way morality and rationality as well as informality and formality have been interconnected. Alissa Tolstokorova addresses the formation of an informal labour market of paid domestic services as a new form of gender-specific reproductive labour in Ukraine. Apart from these contributions to the thematic part, Mieczysław P. Boduszyński explains the widespread Euroscepticism in Croatian society, which, a scarce two years after accession, largely remains ambivalent, indifferent, or even hostile to the ostensible benefits of EU membership. In addition, the issue features six book reviews.
