|Resumen:||Young people have been disproportionately affected by the global crisis that erupted in the autumn of 2008. These trends have exacerbated earlier challenges and there is concern that the situation of youth will become unsustainable in some countries, representing a threat to social cohesion.
The paper shows that all is not lost regarding youth unemployment. Some countries have done better than others in reducing the effects of the crisis on youth employment, which is partly due to relatively favourable initial conditions but partly also to the adoption of effective policies.
