Young people in the labour market in Hungary and Slovenia: problems and perspectives

Show Summary Details


This chapter aims to present the major changes young people have encountered in Hungary and Slovenia since the beginning of the period of economic transformation. It notes that this issue will be analysed in the broader context of societal transformation, and the focus is on the educational and employment situation of youth. The chapter explains that both in Hungary and Slovenia some market elements were already present at the beginning of the economic transformation, whereas this was not the case in most other countries of the region. Moreover, when the transition process from a planned to a market economy started, the post-socialist countries opted for different types of reform decisions. The chapter explains that the influence of external factors also varied. Similarly, social-policy arrangements evolved in a diverging way, anticipating the emergence of potentially different welfare regimes in the future.
