Creating jobs will be one of the main challenges for Kosovo in the near future. It would undoubtedly improve the population’s well-being and would address a major factor of social and political unrest, as massive unemployment (coupled, in the case of Kosovo, with a young population) is widely seen to be a major cause of instability.
This report is an attempt to provide an answer to a crucial question: ‘How to reduce unemployment in Kosovo?’ To do so, it assesses the current labour market and reviews policy options to reduce unemployment, both in the short and longer terms.
