Research Handbook of International and Comparative Perspectives on Diversity Management

Edited by Alain Klarsfeld, Eddy S. Ng, Lize A.E. Booysen, Liza Castro Christiansen and Bård Kuvaas

This Research Handbook offers, for the first time, a comparative approach to current diversity management concerns facing nations. Spanning 19 countries and across Africa, it covers age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, national origin and the intersection of various dimensions of diversity. The multicultural and multi-country teams of contributors, leading scholars in their own countries, examine how the various actors react, adopt and manage the different dimensions of diversity, from a multitude of approaches, from national to sectoral and from tribes to trade unions, but always with a comparative, multi-country perspective.

Chapter 9: A comparative analysis of youth labor market exclusion

Lourdes Susaeta, Paula Apascaritei, Esperanza Suárez Ruz, Isis Gutiérrez-Martínez, Sandra Idrovo Carlier and José Ramón Pin Arboledas


In this chapter, we analyze the relationship between the phenomenon of adultism, as one possible factor in youth discrimination, and its effect on youth unemployment. Our review is a cross-country comparative study of Mexico, Colombia and Spain. This chapter provides explanations and analyzes differences in youth unemployment in terms of educational attainment and experience, as well as country-level economic conditions. Firms and policy makers will face the challenge of optimally managing the diverse population predicted to be active in the labor market in future years and the related challenge of avoiding ageism in the workforce.
