Details : Moving from education into the world of work is a crucial phase in youth lives. Wide evidence shows that initial difficulties in this process might have long lasting consequences. Early entrance in the labour market combined with low human capital accumulation can lead to increased youth vulnerability and difficulties in accessing gainful employment. On the other hand, an increase in youth employment problems (e.g., lack of access to jobs, increased spells of unemployment, low wages, etc.) can create additional disincentives for investment in child education. However, there is relatively little evidence on the determinants of the young workers’ labour market performances and, in particular, on impact of early entry in the labour market on long-term employment outcomes. The UCW Programme and the School of Labor and Human Resources of the Renmin University of China are organizing a one day seminar to present recent research on the transition from school to work, on the impact of early entry in the labour market and its linkages with educational and youth employment outcomes. The seminar will also aim at identifying key information gaps relating to these themes, thereby helping to guide future research efforts.
