  1. Youth Employment Action Plan 2010-2013

    17 November 2011

    Over the last several years, growing political attention has been given to youth employment in Albania, where the difficulties young people face in entering and remaining in the labour market are compounded by the additional burden of large numbers of young people who are engaged in the informal economy. Youth unemployment, underemployment and informality impose heavy costs on Albania. Long unemployment spells early in life and extended periods in the informal economy affect the prospects of young people to secure a career job and a decent wage. High percentages of unemployed youth mean that investments in education and training are wasted, that there is a reduced taxation base and higher welfare costs.

  2. ILO-IPEC steps to eliminate the worst forms of child labour in Kosovo

    17 November 2011

    Poverty, barriers to education (accessibility, affordability, quality, relevance) and tolerant attitudes to child labour push a high number of children to enter child labour as early as 10 years old. In addition, due to a temporary “value vacuum”, family and community values have broken down and consequently increased the vulnerability of children. The streets have become the main place for the socialization of many children due to lack of proper supervision and care.
