Economic And Social Consequences Triggered By The Neet Youth


  • Mariana Balan


The NEET rate is a relatively new indicator which gained during the last two decades an increasingly higher importance with respect to youths’ labour market both in the approaches of international organisations and in the mass-media. The high rates of the young NEET population represents one of the important challenges for each country, not only due to the risks of the “scarring effects” but also due to the negative effects of this statutes on the future outcomes of the labour market for the individual and for the community and the society in which he/she lives. Evaluating the economic and social consequences of the NEET statutes plays an important role in developing the policies for youths and in adopting measures for increasing their insertion on the labour market and for encouraging them to remain enrolled in educational or vocational training systems. The paper presents a brief analysis of the NEET youths’ situation in Romania within the European context and highlights a series of economic and social consequences generated by the NEET statutes for some youths.
