  1. Employment and Migration in Serbia

    12 August 2013

    Serbia counts more than 800,000 young people between the ages of 15 and 24 – 52 per cent men and 48 per cent women – which is almost 18% of the overall working age population. These young Serbians face great labour market challenges. The employment rate for youth aged 15-24, just above 15 per cent, is three times lower than for the working-age population (47 per cent). With an unemployment rate reaching 46 per cent, the young generation is also more than twice as likely to be unemployed as the overall working-age population, which faces an unemployment rate of 20 per cent.

    Monitoring and assessing progress (MAP) towards decent work at the country-level is a long-standing concern for the ILO and its constituents. Against this background, the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization (2008) recommends the establishment of appropriate indicators or statistics, if necessary with assistance from the ILO, to monitor the progress made in the implementation of the ILO Decent Work Agenda. The Regional Workshop was organized as one of the key regional activities under the MAP project. The meeting involved 40 participants, including government officials from ministries of labour and national statistical offices of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Macedonia (FYR), Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, Russian Federation and Ukraine. In addition, workers’ and employers’ representatives from Ukraine also participated, as well as leading Ukrainian researchers in the area of labour market development and trends.
