Abstract:In the immediate aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008, young people all over the world have been among those who most suffered the consequences on the labour market. This is clearly visible in the rate of youth unemployment higher than 50% in Spain and Greece in the early 2010s. A social category has found frequent use in that context: NEET. Young people not in education, employment or training, people who often did not manage to successfully go from school to work and successively disengaged from society. This thesis analyses how the countries formerly constituting Czechoslovakia, Czechia and Slovakia, have tackled the issue. The central question therefore is: “How has the Czech and Slovak public sector adapted to reduce the number of youth not in education, employment or training (NEET) between 2011 and 2019?” This thesis will find that many of the policies suggested to be effective by NEET literature have not found much attention by these two governments and that those policy areas that did receive attention from the governments are often still lagging behind in comparison to the rest of the EU.
