Rampant youth unemployment is a massive problem in many societies. In southern Europe, between 30 and 50 percent of young people are jobless. Many others work under precarious and insecure conditions. A similar picture of hopelessness can be seen in many countries in the southern hemisphere, fuelling the desire of many in the younger generation to emigrate. How can we approach this development and create better prospects?
