This article will examine youth unemployment experience in a number of countries and the different measures that have been adopted to alleviate them in some way. We begin by stressing the dangers in trying to make international comparisons of unemployment by discussing briefly the shortcomings of the available data. Notwithstanding such deficiencies an assessment is made of the situation across a number of countries and the possible causal factors are briefly considered. Finally, in the light of this analysis some of the measures that have been taken in different countries to deal with the problem are described and particular features and measures of special interest to the debate about future policies directed towards improving the employment opportunities for young persons are discussed.
