EU measures to tackle youth unemployment
Ahead of the Heads of State and Government Conference on Youth taking place in Paris on 12 November, the European Commission has published a memo summarising the series of measures taken to fight youth unemployment at EU level. The memo focuses on the Youth Guarantee and its implementation, as well as on the support to the initiative by the European Social Fund and the Youth Employment Initiative.
It also covers other important topics such as the Action Teams set up in February 2012 with the eight Member States with the (at the time) highest levels of youth unemployment, the Country Specific Recommendations for 2013, the importance of transitions from school to work, labour mobility and the ESF support for young people.
