September 19, 2017
The proceedings of a conference on youth employment, hosted by the Union for the Mediterranean, have been published by the EU-funded Euro-Mediterranean Network for Economic Studies (EMNES). The aim of the conference was to present the results of a study on “Youth employment and regional integration in the Euro-Mediterranean region” conducted by EMNES in collaboration with the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) and the Euro-Mediterranean Economists’ Association (EMEA)
The study examines how regional integration can provide both short-term and long-term solutions to the employment crisis in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
The study dealt with the current state of affairs, challenges and policies on youth unemployment and regional integration, then quantified the impact on youth employment through greater regional integration, before outlining qualitative scenarios on job creation, and policy recommendations to foster youth employment and employability in the region, with a specific focus on the role of the Union for the Mediterranean.
