O’Reilly, J., C. Moyart, T. Nazio and M. Smith (2018) (eds.). (Bristol: Policy Press)
After the financial crisis of 2008 youth unemployment soared across Europe, leaving a generation of highly qualified young people frustrated in their search for secure, meaningful work.
With contributions from over 90 authors and more than 60 individual contributions this collection summarises the findings of a large-scale EU funding project on Strategic Transitions for Youth Labour in Europe (STYLE).
Including the often overlooked and unheard voices of young people themselves, this eclectic range of contributions discuss the distinctive characteristics of the current phase of youth employment.
It provides a comprehensive analysis of the causes of European youth unemployment and assesses the effectiveness of labour market policies across the region.
