  10. Towards Policies Tackling the Current Youth Employment Challenges in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

    19 September 2017

    The ILO, addressing the persistent youth employment crisis, has called upon robust actions based on broad partnerships and innovative mechanisms of policy formulating and multiplication of efforts. As a significant step in this direction, and with reference to recently adopted guiding documents, the ILO is issuing the report aimed at supporting its constituents in tackling youth employment challenge through a coherent and sound approach to macroeconomic policies, employment, skills development and other relevant issues. Such approach is suggested to be fostered through a mechanism of voluntary peer reviews on youth employment policies, which serves as an arena for mutual learning and elaboration of policy tools and recommendations with reference to good practices. The publication provides viable solutions on what works for youth employment, and can be used as a separate report or together with the Toolkit for conducting voluntary peer reviews on youth employment policies and Methodology for conducting youth labour market analysis. The publication has been inspired and nourished by the practical experience of a comprehensive peer review process organized within the frames of the ILO Project “Partnerships for Youth Employment in the Commonwealth of Independent States (YEP CIS)”. The project has been implemented by the ILO Decent Work Team and Country Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia, with financial support of LUKOIL company. The peer review process involved constituents representing nine countries from Eastern Europe and Central Asia: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, the Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. This publication has been ameliorated by original and eloquent inputs by all participating countries, which through the whole process validated the content, checking it against their concrete experiences of policy making and adequate policy change.
