Transition from education to work: What relevance for MEDA partners? (MEDA ETE regional project)

One of the major concerns for policymakers at the beginning of the 21st century is the deteriorating labour market position of young people. This report presents two different approaches that in the course of the past decade have been influential amongst academic researchers and policymakers – the CATEWE conceptual framework and the concept of the transitional labour market (TLM). Both have been used in order to understand better in a comprehensive manner the problems of the youth labour market and, more specifically, the ways in which young people make the transition from school to work.
