This paper considers what action is needed to address the challenges facing millennials in the labour market.

It outlines a fundamentally new approach: an active labour market policy to confront the challenges of the 21st, not the 20th century. In particular this means a new focus on the security of, and opportunities within, work for young people, rather than a narrow focus on youth unemployment.
