Youth employment is a global social and economic challenge. The difficulties young people face in accessing work that allows skill use and development, and a decent living wage, have multiple scarring effects (McQuaid, 2017) not only for young people’s future employment and career outcomes but also for organizations (e.g., underutilisation of labour) and society (e.g., community welfare). The challenges of youth employment are therefore multi-faceted involving numerous stakeholders. This Special Issue features a mix of full-length empirical papers and stakeholder interviews focusing on key themes related to youth employment.
