    Improving school-to-work transitions and ensuring better career opportunities for youth after labour market entrance are common goals in emerging and advanced economies as they can contribute to raising the productive potential of the economy and to increasing social cohesion. However, the challenges faced in achieving these objectives and the policies required vary between emerging and advanced economies. This paper analyses youth labour market outcomes in 16 countries: eight emerging countries and eight advanced economies. In light of this analysis, it also discusses differences and similarities in the policy measures countries have at their disposal to tackle the key emerging challenges. Améliorer les transitions de l’école à l’emploi et assurer aux jeunes des meilleures opportunités professionnelles après l’entrée sur le marché du travail sont des buts partagés par les pays développés et émergents car ils peuvent contribuer à augmenter le potentiel productif de l’économie et à accroitre la cohésion sociale. Toutefois, les défis auxquels les pays sont confrontés pour atteindre ces objectifs et les politiques requises varient entre les pays émergents et les économies plus avancées. Ce document analyse la réussite des jeunes sur le marché du travail dans 16 pays : huit pays émergents et huit économies avancées. En vue de cette analyse, ce document expose les différences et similarités dans les mesures de politique économique que les pays ont à leur disposition pour faire face aux défis émergeants.
