How regional integration leads to youth employment in the Euro-Mediterranean region
This study examines how regional integration can provide both short-term and long-term solutions to the employment crisis in the Euro-Mediterranean region. First, the current state of affairs, challenges and policies as regards to youth unemployment and regional integration in the Euro-Mediterranean region are described. Second, the impact on youth employment creation through regional integration of Mediterranean countries is quantified. Finally, qualitative scenarios on job creation, for which long-term challenges are devised and policy recommendations to foster youth employment and employability in the region are formulated, in light of the alternative scenarios planned and drafted with a specific focus on the role of the Union for the Mediterranean.
