The policy brief no. 2, “Early job insecurity in Europe: Mapping diversity and the impact of the economic crises”, by Dimitris Parsanoglou, Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences, presents the work of WP3.

One of the main objectives of the NEGOTIATE project is to set out the general context in which young people in each country across Europe form their work expectations and “negotiate” their labour market integration and transition from youth to adulthood. This has been achieved by carrying out a macro-level comparative analysis of early job insecurity in Europe.

The main findings largely converge main tendencies are concerned. In most countries, there are key variables that are independent of the position of the individual in the labour market. The most important variable is gender, where women in all countries are more exposed to unemployment and job insecurity than men.
