Creating active labour markets: how to improve employment outcomes for young women and men

Published: Dec. 28, 2017

This brief is based on a systematic review by Kluve and colleagues which examines the effects of active labour market programmes for youth, including training and skills development, entrepreneurship promotion, employment services and subsidised employment.

The findings suggest that programmes conducted in low- and middle-income countries tend to have bigger effects on employment and wages than those in high-income countries.
