Many countries have recently introduced ambitious reform programmes, aimed at enhancing young people's school-to-work (STW) transitions. These new regimes of STW transition programmes are the focus of this IZA discussion paper jointly researched by researchers from IES, Warwick Business School and IZA.
The discussion paper aims to consider two key questions regarding the performance and evolution of STW transition regimes in Europe following the recession:

  • What role have the institutional characteristics of distinct STW transition regimes played in structuring the impact of the economic crisis on young people's involvement in the labour market?
  • How have policies introduced following the recession changed the structure and logic of European STW transition regimes, and what will be the impact on young people's STW transitions in the future?
