Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
Creating jobs, reducing youth unemployment, and tackling labour market inequalities are challenges faced by developing countries. In Africa, graduate and youth unemployment are urgent policy issues. Inclusion and integration of women and vulnerable groups into the labour market are also constrained due to restricted opportunities and access. The school-to-work transition is a crucial stage in the lives of young people, and successful transition is instrumental in the fight against poverty and inequality. This project seeks to understand the causal mechanisms underlying problems in access to employment among young people and disadvantaged groups including women and people with disabilities.
