Policymaking by partnership: Reshaping youth employment policy


  • David Bresnick


One of the common problems of advanced industrialized countries is that of youth unemployment. While the policies which a nation implements are culture-bound, deeply rooted in its history and institutions, at times nations have successfully borrowed from one another. An investigation of policymaking affecting youth unemployment in six advanced industrialized countries indicates differences and similarities. Policies and programs in this area seemed most successful in those countries in which business and labor departed from the familiar role of special interest group and instead cooperated actively on policy formulation and execution.
