News The Employment Committee (EMCO) plays a key role in the implementation of the European Employment Strategy. In February 2010, the ad hoc group of this committee published a report outlining measures taken by Member States to fight against youth unemployment and presents the future priorities in this area.

Although most EU Member States are facing similar problems when it comes to fight youth unemployment, there are large differences between the individual national situations. In February 2010, the EMCO Ad Hoc Group examined how Member States' labour market policies intend to foster youth employment, concentrating in particular on anti-crisis measures. This thematic review focused on a number of criteria considered to represent potential difficulties for young people in the future: transitions from school to work, education attainment level, early school leavers, skills matching etc. The report also illustrates practices and instruments put into effect in different countries; it traces existing bottlenecks and shows a glimpse of Member States future priorities for further reforms. The Ad Hoc Group Report also sheds some light on the identity and involvement of stakeholders, the role of ESF and the promotion of good practices in this policy area.
