The study presents a systematization of the active labour market policy in the period 2014-2020 according to various criteria: a) assessments of the continuity and the consistency in the economic policy as reflected in the goals of the main programming documents (up to 2020) and to the previous programming period (2007-2013); b) assessment of the dynamics of key indicators of the active policy (number of people included in different programs, number of people working on programs, funds spent); c) assessment of the dynamics and structure of basic parameters of the labour market (economic activity, employment, unemployment); d) individual assessments from available sociological surveys. The main characteristics outlining positive trends in the development of the active labour market policy are presented, as well as existing imbalances in the scope of the target groups and deficits in the structuring of the programs and their effective management. Based on the systematization of the policies and the existing evaluations of its effectiveness, recommendations are outlined for improving the structure, the targeting and the flexibility of the active labour market policy in the context of the recent challenges of the labour development. The outlined findings enriched the existing knowledge's of the contemporary labour market policy in Bulgaria and could be useful for the policy makers and the institutions in charge of the its' successful development.
