Abstract:

PES to PES Dialogue is the European Commission's mutual learning support program for public employment services (PESs) in the European Union. It aims to contribute to the implementation of the priorities of the Europe 2020 strategy and the Employment Guidelines by helping to increase the capacity and effectiveness of PESs. Very little is known about the effectiveness of youth integration measures. The few empirical investigations available indicate that work-based integration measures result in a rapid transition to work. This is confirmed by the assessments given in the peer country reports. This comparative report is based on the peer country reports which cover a wide range of aspects. There are, however, still under-explored areas in the comparative tables, and thus could be the subject of further debate. A comprehensive evaluation of youth integration programs needs a data basis which allows longitudinal analysis of participants, a well-structured description of measures, and the isolation of [active labour market policy] ALMP expenditures for the target group. This in not available in all countries and substantial efforts are needed to allow a better understanding of what works.
