EU Youth Employment Initiative: ‘Rights-based’ employment policy

by on April 26, 2013

We’ve blogged before on the EU Youth Employment initiative.  The Youth Guarantee scheme was originally intended to target those in the EU aged under 25 who had been unemployed for more than four months and to offer them a job, training or an apprenticeship.

According to this piece on the Euroalert website, the Employment and Social Affairs Committee have now adopted an amended proposal on the initiative which will extend the scheme to young people under 30. Interesting to see the concept of ‘youth’ being extended in this way.

The scheme is also an interesting example of (age-based) ‘rights-based’ employment policy, as termed in this document published by the European Youth Forum.
