The prolonged economic crisis has aggravated the youth labour market situation. Youth unemployment has continued to rise globally and is experiencing an upward trend in most regions, while developing countries also face major challenges regarding the quality of available work for young people.
Transitions to decent work are slow and difficult for young workers. In this context, the ILO has been calling for a multi-pronged approach to foster the growth of employment and the creation of decent jobs through a coherent set of economic, social and labour market policy measures which are gender-sensitive and respect the rights of young workers. The Centre’s training activities aim to enhance the capacity to analyse youth labour markets and conceive and evaluate youth employment policies and programmes.
Promoting decent jobs for young people in a comprehensive and appropriate manner is at the centre of the ILO's 2012 report "The Youth Employment Crisis: a Call for Action". Read More
