[Delivered: January 2020 (version1)/ March 2020 (version 2)]

Report

The present report based on a literature review and a conceptualization framework presents a thorough quantitative meta-analysis of the expansion of NEETs in the target regions and countries between 2008 and 2018. From the in-depth analysis of rich qualitative data, collected during 2019 in all target countries, the report brings foreword the beliefs and agency of various actors, namely young NEETs, individuals involved in Social and Sharing Economies, and employment advisors or other key informants. Finally, based on the conclusions derived by the previous analyses, the report performs an impact assessment of contemporary employment policies, focusing mainly on the effectiveness of the Youth Guarantee (YG) in the Southern regions of the EU. In that framework, the efficiency of employment services, youth counselling centres and services, and youth employability providers in the study areas are also critically approached.
