Global Youth Unemployment

History, Governance and Policy

Ross Fergusson and Nicola Yeates

This timely book introduces a fresh perspective on youth unemployment by analysing it as a global phenomenon. Ross Fergusson and Nicola Yeates argue that only by incorporating analysis of the dynamics of the global economy and global governance can we make convincing, comprehensive sense of these developments. The authors present substantial new evidence spanning a century pointing to the strong relationships between youth unemployment, globalisation, economic crises and consequent harms to young people’s social and economic welfare worldwide. The book notably encompasses data and analysis spanning the Global South as well as the Global North.

Gilles Pradeau

Democratic reforms are one of the many areas where intense debates occur to provide explanations for different waves of democratization. Regime changes are messy processes, influenced by geographical proximity, communication between social movements and democracy promotion (Elkink, 2011). This Handbook about the transfer of policies shows how complex the causal mechanisms triggering policy reforms are (as discussed in the chapter written by Kuhlmann). International players can add to their portfolio some special political institutions for democracy promotion which can facilitate the transfer to other jurisdictions as there is no single model of democracy. Despite having a common interest at their core (sharing power beyond elite rule), there are largely distinct conversations structured around specific practices such as parliamentary strengthening programmes, direct democracy mechanisms and other types of instruments allowing citizen engagement. But can democratic institutions be exported? Or is it merely the transfer of bureaucratic rules related to ‘good governance’?
