Background

Increasing levels of long-term unemployment is a critical issue for the majority of OECD countries. There are many factors that put people at risk of long-term unemployment, including poverty and social exclusion, poor skills levels, discrimination, cultural distance from the mainstream labour market, caring responsibilities, past criminality and weak local social capital. The breadth of such factors highlights the diverse challenges which need to be addressed in order to reduce long-term unemployment, and emphasises that economic growth alone is not in itself a solution.

To find effective financing and delivery mechanisms to address long-term unemployment, and the complex factors which contribute to it, is a challenge which practitioners and policy-makers confront. The seminar will review innovations in these areas and reflect on how they can be used to support the long-term unemployed into employment.

The seminar was organised within the framework of the OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Governance and its outcomes will feed into the OECD LEED project on tackling long-term unemployment amongst vulnerable groups.

 

The seminar

The 1.5-day seminar explored:

 

Innovative financing tools for tackling long-term unemployment.

 

Innovations in delivery mechanisms by both the public and private sectors that address the complex issues which many long-term unemployed confront.

 

The role of the social economy – including a visit to a successful social enterprise in Trento.

With informative case studies, expert contributions and interactive workshops, the seminar was a valuable opportunity to share experiences and explore new approaches.

 

Who

The seminar was targeted at national, regional and local practitioners who dealt with long-term unemployment and were seeking new approaches to addressing it. Experts who were keen to share good practice were also welcome to apply.
