This short report aims to provide a synthesis of Eurofound data and analysis on the situation of young people in Greece. It draws upon existing Eurofound research that examined the issue of young people ‘not in employment, education or training’ (NEET). This research is particularly pertinent for Greece, which has been disproportionately affected by youth unemployment as a result of the economic crisis. Societal effects include the greater financial dependence of young people on the family income, and the delaying of family formation. The report finds that young people with a tertiary level of education, and young women looking for their first job are candidates for targeted policy action. In addition, the older NEET population (25–29 years) merits special attention.
