Task Force on Youth Employment
29 November 2013
Towards Better Employment Prospects for Young People
Youth unemployment in Europe is reaching unsustainable levels in a large number of Member States, and this is likely to have long-term economic, political and social consequences on the EU as a whole. A series of initiatives have recently been proposed by the European Commission, which need to be adopted and implemented as soon as possible. Although the role of the EU is considered insufficient in comparison to the size of the issue, efforts should now be made to ensure that the limited funds available should be used in the most effective way possible.
The EPC is launching a new Task Force on how to offer better employment prospects to young people in Europe. The research will be structured around two pillars. First, it will look into what concrete initiatives and measures EU money have led to at the regional level and whether any conclusions can be drawn with regard to the implementation of the youth guarantee scheme. Second, the Task Force will take a longer-term perspective and explore how the education and training system can be better adapted to the needs of the labour market. The Task Force, chaired by Professor Ton Wilthagen, will put forward policy recommendations which could help shape policies in the short and medium term.
For more information or to become a member of the Task Force, please contact Claire Dhéret, EPC Policy Analyst.
