The Social Protection of Young People on the Labour Market


  • Pobeda Loukanova


The position of the young people on the Bulgarian labour market is presented in details, together with the possibilities for easy transfers to their first jobs. The stress is put on the increasing vulnerability of the youth employment in the period of recent crisis and on its specific problems in Bulgaria. The social protection of the young people in the field of education, and as active and passive policies on the labour market is examined from the point of view of the specific youth problems in the country, and from that of strategic documents coming from European Commission and Bulgarian Government. Some policy recommendations are articulated and also the arguments about the need of integrated approach implementation towards young people policies.
