While the youth labour market has improved considerably since 2014, one legacy of the recent economic crisis is the large cohort of long-term unemployed young people, which represents nearly one-third of jobless young people. This report provides an updated profile of the youth labour market in 2016 and describes trends over the past decade. It explores the determinants of long-term unemployment, at both sociodemographic and macroeconomic levels. It also provides evidence on the serious consequences for young people of spending a protracted time in unemployment, such as scarring effects on income and occupation and on several dimensions of young people’s well-being. The report concludes with a discussion of selected policy measures recently implemented by 10 Member States in order to prevent young people from becoming long-term unemployed or, if they are in such circumstances, to integrate them into the labour market or education.

    Disoccupazione giovanile di lunga durata: caratteristiche e risposte politiche

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    Mentre il mercato del lavoro giovanile è notevolmente migliorato dal 2014, un’eredità della recente crisi economica è rappresentata dalla grande coorte di giovani disoccupati di lunga durata, che rappresenta quasi un terzo dei giovani disoccupati. La presente relazione offre un profilo aggiornato del mercato del lavoro giovanile nel 2016 e descrive le tendenze registrate negli ultimi dieci anni. Esamina i fattori determinanti della disoccupazione di lunga durata, a livello sia sociodemografico che macroeconomico. Fornisce inoltre prove delle gravi conseguenze per i giovani di un prolungamento del periodo di disoccupazione, come gli effetti «cicatrice» sul reddito e sull’occupazione nonché sui diversi aspetti del loro benessere. La relazione termina con una discussione sulle misure politiche selezionate e recentemente attuate da 10 Stati membri per evitare che i giovani diventino disoccupati di lunga durata o, laddove si trovino in questa situazione, per integrarli nel mercato del lavoro o nell’istruzione.
