The present report on Japan is the seventh report in the Investing in Youth series.
In three statistical chapters, the report provides an overview of the labour market
situation of young people in Japan, presents a portrait of young people who are not
in employment, education or training (the NEETs) and analyses the income situation
of young people in Japan. Two policy chapters provide recommendations on how Japan
can improve the school-to-work transition of disadvantaged young people, and on how
employment, social and training programmes can help the NEETs find their way back
into education or work.
Earlier reviews in the same series have looked at youth policies in Brazil (2014),
Latvia and Tunisia (2015), Australia, Lithuania and Sweden (2016).
