The Youth Unemployment in the European Union with Focus on the Czech Republic
Průchová, Michaela ; Bič, Josef (advisor) ; Procházková Ilinitchi, Cristina (referee)
The thesis is focused on the issue of youth unemployment in the European Union, with the greatest emphasis on the Czech Republic. The main objective of my thesis is to evaluate and recommend suitable practices that would contribute to cut down the youth unemployment rate in the Czech Republic. The most important methods I used in my thesis are scientific description and induction. I have also used a lot of statistical data that is tied to both the Czech and the European labour market. The bachelor thesis is divided into three chapters, the first of which is devoted to the introduction of the issue and specifics of the groups of people endangered with unemployment. The second chapter deals with the unemployment of young people in the European Union, the causes and effects of unemployment and development in the Member States. The last chapter focuses primarily on the unemployment among young people in the Czech Republic, its development and practices against unemployment. In conclusion, I evaluate that the practices implemented by both the European Union and the Czech Republic have a positive impact on the situation of young people on the labour market in the Czech Republic. However, it is not possible to say with certainty which practices are the most beneficial, since it also depends on external influences and the overall state of the economy. Overall, however, I have evaluated as beneficial those practices that contribute to the development of young people personalities, skills and their potentials. This can be achieved mainly through training courses, counselling, and providing of internships and professional practices. As a recommendation to the future, I am suggesting to keep deepening the current efforts to support groups of people who are disadvantaged on the labour market, while focusing particularly on education, work experience and skills improvement.
