Youth Employment

Published on


Youth employment has grown in prominence on national and global development agendas. The youth employment challenge has its own dimensions and confronts countries worldwide regardless of their stage of socio-economic development. The underlying problems are the large number of young people entering the labour markets every year, the lack of employment opportunities in particular in poor economies and post-conflict countries, and the low quality of education and training without a proper link to the labour markets. This paper tries to outline the dimension of the problem, the reasons why to intervene, and the possibilities of improving youth employment.
