  • Dan Marin Boaja

    (University of Craiova Faculty of Economics and Business Administration)


One of the major challenges which Romania faces, and also most of European countries, is high youth unemployment which became worse in the current crisis period. This phenomena appeared in the crisis context first because youngsters had and they still have difficulties entering on the labour market and after being hired they were been affected in the first wave of dismisses. At European Union level is considered as high priority young entrance on labour market first from employment policies development point of view, and second from educational ones. In Romania, young people have problems at entering on labour market especially due to poor education. Educational system have suffered in the last decade because major lack of funds and also because of high poverty rate which led to education dropout.
