Economic and Social Inclusion

  • Whereas the overall unemployment rate in Albania stands at 17.3%, youth fare considerably worse in the labour market with as many as 34.1% of those actively seeking employment being unable to find one.

  • Youth unemployment, under-employment and informality impose heavy costs on the Albanian economy and society. Long unemployment spells early in life and extended employment in the informal economy affect the prospects of youth to secure a career job, a decent wage and a future for them and their families.

  • Different population groups experience different and overlapping vulnerabilities or face different barriers, as result of the diverse nature of the socio-economic and political forces that determine social exclusion.
