Resumen

Young people in Europe continue to experience great difficulties in entering the labour market. Although the youth unemployment rate in a few Member States has started to fall, overall 23% of young European job-seekers aged 15–24 could not find a job in January 2014. In 2012, 14.6 million young people across Europe were not in employment, education or training (NEETs), accounting for 15.9% of the entire population of those aged 15–29. This report analyses the labour market situation of young people in Europe, focusing in particular on their school-to-work transition, while also monitoring their more general transition to adulthood. The report also investigates the ability of young people to remain in employment against the odds during the crisis and charts their transitions from temporary to permanent contracts. The report concludes with a discussion on the strengths and weaknesses of selected policy measures. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Análisis de las transiciones de los jóvenes en Europa

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Los jóvenes en Europa siguen teniendo grandes dificultades para acceder al mercado de trabajo. Aunque la tasa de desempleo juvenil ha empezado a disminuir en algunos Estados miembros, en enero de 2014 un 23 % de los solicitantes de empleo de entre 15 y 24 años de edad no pudo encontrar trabajo. In 2012, 14,6 millones de jóvenes de toda Europa pertenecían al grupo de los «NiNi» (ni trabajaban ni estudiaban), es decir, el 15,9 % del conjunto de las personas de 15 a 29 años de edad. El presente informe analiza la situación de los jóvenes en el mercado laboral europeo y se centra, en particular, en la transición del mundo académico al mundo laboral, aunque también se ocupa de la transición más general hacia la edad adulta. El informe examina asimismo la capacidad de los jóvenes para conservar, contra todo pronóstico, el empleo durante la crisis y describe la transición de los contratos temporales a los permanentes. Como conclusión del estudio se exponen los puntos fuertes y débiles de una serie de medidas políticas.
