Youth unemployment rates in Europe are dramatically high. Many EU Member States have implemented youth employment policies that facilitate and support young people’s pathways through education to employment and tackle such diverse issues as early school leaving, school-to-work transitions and employability. But how effective are such policies? What are their strengths and their weaknesses and what characteristics make an effective policy in the field of youth unemployment? This report reviews existing evidence on the effectiveness of 25 policies tackling youth unemployment for a selected number of countries (AT, FI, FR, HU, IE, IT, ES, SE, UK) and complements this information with expert interviews. It seeks to assess the extent to which the chosen measures have been successful, looking at their outputs, outcomes and wider impact. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    L-effikaċja ta’ miżuri ta’ politika biex tiżdied il-parteċipazzjoni taż-żgħażagħ fix-xogħol

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    Ħafna Stati Membri tal-UE qed jiffaċċjaw rata għolja u allarmanti ta’ qgħad fost iż-żgħażagħ. Biex jindirizzawha, implimentaw medda wiesgħa ta’ politiki għall-impjiegi għaż-żgħażagħ li jiffaċilitaw u jsostnu l-mogħdijiet taż-żgħażagħ mill-edukazzjoni għax-xogħol u jittrattaw kwistjonijiet diversi bħat-tluq bikri mill-iskola, it-tranżizzjonijiet mill-iskola għax-xogħol u l-impjegabbiltà. Imma kemm huma effettivi politiki bħal dawn? Dan ir-rapport janalizza l-evidenza eżistenti dwar l-effikaċja ta’ 25 politika li jittrattaw il-qgħad fost iż-żgħażagħ f’disa’ Stati Membri u jikkomplementa din l-informazzjoni b’intervisti esperti. Ifittex li jivvaluta kemm irnexxew dawn il-miżuri magħżula billi jqis il-prodotti, ir-riżultati u l-impatt aktar mifrux tagħhom. Dan l-istudju sab li għandu jsir aktar enfasi fuq l-iżvilupp u l-implimentazzjoni ta’ evalwazzjonijiet sistematiċi għax dawn jgħinu biex jiġu identifikati l-aħjar prattiċi, itejbu l-impjegabbiltà u l-parteċipazzjoni taż-żgħażagħ fis-suq tax-xogħol u finalment joħorġu l-potenzjal ta’ kull persuna żagħżugħa.
