Guaranteeing employment or training options for NEETs in Sweden

This chapter looks at Sweden’s policies and programmes to bring NEETs into education or employment. The chapter begins by describing the current architecture of employment and social services delivery, including the challenge of co-ordinating services for at-risk youth. It presents strategies for reaching out to disengaged youth. It then discusses the programmes aimed at re-engaging young jobseekers in employment, education or training, and to provide them with comprehensive social support. The chapter ends with a discussion of the political framework for ensuring that the impact of programmes targeted at NEETs in Sweden is rigorously evaluated.
