    Young people play a crucial role in meeting many challenges and socio-economic, demographic, cultural, environmental and technological opportunities that the European Union and its citizens face now and will face in the coming years. Promoting social and professional integration of young people is an essential component for achieving the objectives of "Europe 2020” Strategy. Although today most young Europeans enjoy good living conditions, there are still challenges that require resolution, such as youth unemployment, young people not receiving education or training, poverty among youth, low levels of participation and representation of young people in the democratic process, and various health problems. The recent economic downturn has had a significant negative impact on young people and the risk is for its effects to be long-term. This paper presents a brief characterization of the European Union labour market and an analysis of the youth labour market particularities in Romania compared to EU-27 or other EU countries.
