Youth and Employment in North Africa: A Regional Overview

16.11.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

This report provides a situation analysis of youth employment in the six countries of Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Mauritania and Sudan. It has been prepared as background to the conference on ‘Youth Employment in North Africa’ (YENA Conference), which was be convened by the ILO in Geneva in September 2017. The report concludes that young women are at a particular disadvantage in North African labour markets. Despite rising levels of education among women in the region, their opportunities in the economic sphere remain limited. Women face much higher unemployment rates in most countries in the region and have lower labour market participation rates.
