Study on Youth Employment in the Western Balkans

Study on Youth Employment in the Western Balkans

31 May 2021 | REPORT

Youth employment is an important policy priority for all governments in the Western Balkans. Along with general economic development, all economies have experienced a positive trend in youth employment creation in recent years. However, youth unemployment remains stubbornly high, while activity and employment rates are far below the levels seen in the EU, with a strong gender bias.
This Study presents a comparative analysis of the region’s youth labour markets.
The Appendices to the Study analyse the youth labour markets and the policy responses in each of the Western Balkan economies.
