In this paper we propose a dynamic perspective to analyse young people's labour market performance. The approach is based on the analysis of individual trajectories in the labour market, and focuses on young Europeans about five years after they left education. We use this approach also to examine the effects of employment protection legislation and labour market policies on objective youth employment security. Empirical findings suggest that the most disadvantaged groups, such as women and low educated workers, benefit from a more stringent regulation regulation on temporary contracts and higher national expenditures on labour market policies.
