RCC ESAP 2: STUDY ON YOUTH EMPLOYMENT IN THE REPUBLIC OF NORTH MACEDONIA

This Annex to the Study on Youth Employment in the Western Balkans outlines the nature and challenges of the youth labour market in North Macedonia.

The youth labour market is also characterised by large gender gaps in labour market participation and employment, while the participation and employment rates are especially low for young people with a low level of education.
