Webcast on Global Youth Employment Issues

At 10:00 (04:00 EDT) on June 15th, 2012, at the ILO Building in Geneva, a panel of global youth and employment experts will be leading a discussion organized by the Labor Working Group of the Secretary’s Strategic Dialogue with Civil Society entitled Youth Employment Dialogue. The discussion will focus on reviewing and realizing policy recommendations on the youth unemployment crisis, such as those generated at the Youth Employment Forum and ITUC Y20 meeting, with the goal of highlighting one of the most pressing issues facing the global economy today.  The discussion will be lead by Barbara Shailor, Special Representative for International Labor Affairs.  The program is entirely funded by State DRL though a grant to the Jefferson Institute.
