Author(s) : Kring, Sriani A; Breglia, Gabriella M
Abstract : This report is the fruit of collaboration between the International Labour Office (ILO) and the Understanding Children’s Work (UCW) Programme. The aim of the report is to support Indonesia’s ongoing efforts to address the difficult transitions into the labour market experienced by various segments of young people in Indonesia. Indonesia has displayed strong commitment to tackling youth employment and was one of the first countries to sign on as a lead country to the United Nations Youth Employment Network (YEN) in 2002. But enormous challenges remain. Despite an overall long-term trend of a reduction of youth unemployment, poverty and youth informality, many segments of youth remain behind. This report provides fresh data and insights into the diverse labour market situations of young people in Indonesia and reviews existing policies and programmes in order to offer recommendations on measures for consideration by the Government and social partners.
