The integration of young people into the labour market differs considerably between countries. In some countries, young people are smoothly integrated into the labour market, while in others they experience serious and persistent problems. These country differences are systematically structured by national institutional contexts. First of all, labour market regulation matters. Employment protection for the existing labour force has an adverse effect on the integration of young people. In countries with a low degree of employment protection legislation, young people find a (stable) labour market position more easily than in countries with a high degree of employment protection legislation. In addition, it is clear that the presence of an extensive dual system–as a workplace-based vocational training system–improves the transition from school to work in a country.
