IME Study: Assessment of the people not in employment, education and training (NEETs) in Bulgaria and policy measures to effectively address their integration

Author: IME / 2019-10-03

Despite the positive trend of the labour market in recent years, Bulgaria is still struggling to offer inclusion opportunities for a significant share of young people. The present report provides a thorough analysis of the level and geographical distribution of NEETs between 15 and 34 years old, as well as of the main factors that determine youth inactivity. It also reviews the current policies implemented by the Bulgarian government related to NEETs and provides a series of recommendations that could support the sustainable inclusion of inactive young people.
