Italy is facing major challenges in the Euro crisis, given its high unemployment figures, and especially in view of the situation for the young, women and other disadvantaged groups in the labour market, and the challenges they face.

This workshop represents the first NEUJOBS event involving national stakeholders. It is an opportunity for European scholars and national (and European) stakeholders to meet and debate key issues for tackling the labour market transition. Leading scholars from NEUJOBS (FP7 Project) will explain their understanding of present and future challenges to European labour markets, focusing specifically on the case of Italy. Special focus will be placed on two key themes: the role of women in the labour market (and the work/life balance to meet women’s changing demands); the role of young people and their problems in the labour market (with reference to skills formation and education and training to solve their problems).

The workshop will consist of two sessions: the morning one will provide information on the most recent research provided by NEUJOBS; in the afternoon, EU and Italian stakeholders (social partners, analysts and policymakers) will interact to contextualise the Italian labour

market amidst the broad European trends, and to devise strategies for more effective labour, social and education policies. This conference is kindly hosted by and organised in cooperation with LUISS University.
