Thinking Space Paper No.33: Active policies targeting NEETs in Italy

This Thinking Space paper offers a brief review of two policies currently active in Italy, which have been trying to tackle the problem of youth unemployment from different angles. The first policy discussed refers to Italy’s implementation of the Youth Guarantee. The second policy explored is called Resto al Sud (“I stay in the South”). It is an incentive scheme that
targets explicitly unemployed young people in job depressed regions in the South of the country.
