About the forum
The ILO assists its member States to identify the nature and extent of the youth employment challenge at country level and to formulate evidence-based integrated policy and programmatic interventions. This assistance includes support to strengthen national capacity for the collection and analysis of youth labor market information, especially with respect to young people’s transition to the labor market. Current restrictions in labor market information have led to a situation in which the question of why the school-to-work transitions of young people today are a long and difficult process has not yet been satisfactorily answered. At the same time, the goal of improving the transitions of youth is among the policy priorities of a growing number of countries.
In response to this obvious information gap, the ILO developed the school-to-work transition survey (SWTS). The speaker shall discuss the most recent findings from the ILO’s SWTS. The study seeks to expand the knowledge base on youth employment at country level; provide a solid basis for the formulation of youth employment policy interventions; and allocate public resources to address the needs of the most vulnerable groups of the youth population.
