Abstract: Crisis on the labour market is widely dispersed all over European Union. A boost for employment increase could be self-employment, although young people are not prone to engage in such activities. This paper focuses on youth interest in self-employment within EU countries, with special emphasis on Croatia. The main issue studies the youth unemployment impact on youth selfemployment. It is examined the extent of self-employment of all EU members paying attention on differences between Nordic and Eastern European countries. Accordingly, push and pull factors are mentioned in a term of motivation aspects.
