The difficulties of young people and women to access the labour market in Greece deprive the country’s economy of the labour potential of some of the most dynamic segments of Greek society. Given the urgent need to address the output gap produced by the crisis and to reform the national growth model towards innovation and extroversion, mobilization of and investment on Greece’s human capital is of paramount importance for Greece’s economic future.

In this context, the aim of the proposed initiative is twofold:
(a) document and analyse the conditions of the Greek labour market and examine the main barriers that constrain access for the young people, placing an emphasis on gender aspects of such barriers; and
(b) formulate appropriate policy proposals on how to facilitate the access of young people to the Greek labour market, including specific recommendations on how to overcome gender related barriers.

The project will seek to benefit from and utilize knowledge transfer, experience and good practices from Norway as well as other Nordic countries.
