Improving the performance of youth on the labour market is a crucial challenge in OECD countries facing persistent youth unemployment. Whatever the level of qualification, first experiences on the labour market have a profound influence on later working life. This report on Greece contains 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.

Introduction

Improving the performance of youth in the labour market is a crucial challenge in OECD countries. Population ageing is looming, but this is not a magic pill to solve young people’s problems. While smaller youth cohorts are likely to create more job opportunities for youth, it is crucial that young people possess the skills required in today’s and tomorrow’s labour market.
