  2. Employment and Migration in Serbia

    12 August 2013

    Serbia counts more than 800,000 young people between the ages of 15 and 24 – 52 per cent men and 48 per cent women – which is almost 18% of the overall working age population. These young Serbians face great labour market challenges. The employment rate for youth aged 15-24, just above 15 per cent, is three times lower than for the working-age population (47 per cent). With an unemployment rate reaching 46 per cent, the young generation is also more than twice as likely to be unemployed as the overall working-age population, which faces an unemployment rate of 20 per cent.

  3. Youth Employment and Migration in Albania

    12 August 2013

    With a mean age of 30 and 25 per cent of the population in the 15-29 age group, Albania is one of Europe’s youngest countries. However, due to declining mortality and fertility rates over the past decades, Albania’s population is expected to age significantly over the coming years. The Albanian labour market faces problems that are common to most transition economies. The loss of jobs in the industrial sector in the 1990s was not counterbalanced by the weak expansion of the service sector, while agriculture and informal employment act as outlets to relieve labour market pressures.

  4. Youth Employment and Migration in Philippines

    12 August 2013

    Youth aged 15-24 account for more than 17 million of the overall 92.3 million Filipino populationi. With the 25-29 age group, the young generation in the Philippines comes up to 27.5 per cent of the total population. Almost one in three Filipino youth (29.4 per cent) comes from poor families. As an increasing number of young people are entering the labour force, the demographic pressure exacerbates tensions on the labour market, impacting youth labour market outcomes.

  5. Youth Employment and Migration in Tunisia

    12 August 2013

    Youth between 15 and 29 years of age represent 28.4 per cent of the 10.7 million population of Tunisia. It is widely recognized that this young generation has been the main driving-force behind the social and political upheaval that has led to the fall of Ben Ali’s government in January 2011. Today, their persistent discontent, in particular as regards labour market prospects, could weigh on the political and social transition of the country. Above all, youth employment remains a great challenge for Tunisia.
