Local strategies for youth employment: new governance approaches

In many OECD countries youth unemployment rates are predicted to stay high as the haltering recovery remains too weak to provide sufficient job opportunities to the many young jobseekers. They also face large barriers to entering the workplace and as competition for jobs rises as they are increasingly expected to have work experience, even for entry-level positions. Drifting into prolonged unemployment is likely to produce scarring effects and impact on future income levels, skills validity and future employability. With population ageing, countries, regions and communities cannot afford to lose these young people from the labour market.The solution requires new ways of working between all stakeholders in order to optimise all available resources. Work has been carried out by the OECD LEED Programme and the EU URBACT Programme.
