The Youth Guarantee in Europe

This report is composed of four parts: the first part deals with the labour market situation of young people with a special focus on NEETs (young people not in education, employment or training). The second part presents the main features of the Youth Guarantee project as it has been developed at the European level. The third part presents the results of the survey conducted among ETUC affiliates in order to understand whether and how trade unions were involved in the development of the YG schemes at the national level. The fourth part outlines in detail all the YG implementation plans together with the trade union position in each country. The conclusions draw some reflections on the future developments of the YG and point out some potential obstacles that might be addressed in the future.
