This report contains - for Denmark - a survey of the main barriers to employment for young people, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to improve the transition from school-to-work, and a set of policy recommendations for further action by the public authorities and social partners.  

The report is based on the proceedings of a seminar and is published in English only. However, a French translation of the summary and main recommendations has been included in this volume.



Summary and main recommendations

The current economic downturn has brought about a worsening in the labour market performance of Danish youth. In the year to the third quarter 2009, the unemployment rate of youth aged 15-24 rose by 2.7 percentage points to 11.4% according to the labour force survey. However, the youth unemployment rate in Denmark is still well below the corresponding OECD average (17.6%) and even below the levels observed in many other OECD countries before the crisis.
