The Youth Business Forum was held for the third year as the closing event of the Student Entrepreneurship project implemented by Center for Research and Studies GEA. The project is supported by USAID, in partnership with the University of Sarajevo, University of Banja Luka, and University of Mostar.
At a conference entitled “The position of women and youth in the Bosnia and Herzegovina labor market,” Ms. Belma Hadzimahmutovic presented findings and recommendations from her co-authored GEA study “Youth unemployment – the EU and B&H share the problem, but can they share solutions?”
Research work on the position of youth at the labor market.
The economic recession in recent years has had a devastating impact on young people in Bosnia and Herzegovina, with youth unemployment increasing two to three times more than the overall unemployment rate. A new GEA study explores possible solutions to this problem.
Center for Research and Studies GEA has made an analysis of parliamentarians’ wages in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as a part of the Quarterly Economic Monitor (available in the Publications section).
Even though a generally accepted definition of “green jobs” still has not been agreed upon, this job category can be viewed as one of new perspectives and possibilities where Bosnia and Herzegovina could realize significant progress, not only in creating new workplaces, but also through “greening” the existing production processes and capacities.
