Abstract: Youth is a crucial time of life during which young people start to realise their aspirations, assume economic independence and find their place in society. Nevertheless, the global jobs crisis has exacerbated the vulnerability of youth and the toughness of the labour market. The ILO’s School-to-Work Transition Survey (SWTS) is intended to assist in the building of a knowledge base on youth employment and to contribute to the national dialogue on addressing discrepancies between supply and demand for young labour in order to ensure that young people are better equipped to transition to quality employment. It was implemented in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia in 2012 and again in 2014. This article summarises the results of the second SWTS and offers insights into the more recent political framework for youth employment policies in the country. The country has very high youth unemployment rate and the urgency of addressing the issue is greater than in many countries. The government is aware of this and treats youth unemployment as a cross-cutting theme in its policy-making.
