While the Euro debt crisis continues to weaken the global economy, the labor market is making limited progress by remaining at a lower level than before the global economic crisis in 2008. Notwithstanding there is a serious youth employment crisis with nearly 7.5 million youth unemployed worldwide.

Youth employment issues were discussed at the World Bank / IMF Annual Meetings which recently took place in Tokyo. As part of a global employment crisis response, ILO member states also discussed youth employment issues at the 101st session of International Labour Conference in 2012, and a resolution concerning actions to be taken towards youth employment was adopted. 

This seminar on global employment crisis welcomes ILO’s Mr. José Manuel Salazar-Xirinachs, Executive Director of Employment Sector and Professor Keijiro Otsuka, a core team member behind “World Development Report 2013: Jobs” as keynote speakers.
