''School to-work transitions and youth employment policies: toward a shared European approach?''
With the significant rise in the unemployment rate among young generations that has followed the outbreak of the economic crisis, youth employment policies have gained centre stage in the European labour market policy agenda. In 2010, two European Commission flagship initiatives directly addressing young people ("Agenda for new skills and jobs" and "Youth on the move") were adopted in the framework of the EU 2020 strategy. Moreover, in 2013 a new program (the Youth Guarantee) was launched in order to cushion the severe occupational crisis that has affected young people in many countries and the increasing phenomenon of the NEET (i.e. young people not in employment, education or training).
This special issue examines how policy makers are responding to the recent rise in youth unemployment. Authors are invited to submit original papers analysing one of the selected themes. For more information click here.
