Young People in Uncertain Labor Markets: International Evidence

Edited by:

272 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Persistently high rates of youth unemployment have been a global concern for more than two decades. One in five young people is not currently in education, employment, or training; and women, minorities, and individuals in lower socioeconomic populations are among the most vulnerable to becoming unemployed.  

This volume of The ANNALS examines the causes, patterns, and consequences of labor market uncertainties for young adults around the world. Focusing on regional inequalities and widespread trends, this volume both highlights the importance of youth integration into labor markets and outlines policy changes that are crucial for this integration to be successful.
