Sri Lanka has long been regarded as a model of a successful welfare
state in a low-income setting, yet it has not succeeded in creating a
sufficient number of “good jobs” for the increasing number
of young people. Hence, young Sri Lankans perceive their country as an
unjust and unequal society, in which mainstream institutions have
failed to address inequalities in the distribution of resources, as
well as of benefits deriving from economic growth.
Against this background, The Challenge of Youth Employment in Sri
Lanka aims to identify ways to improve the opportunities available
to new job market entrants by addressing existing inequalities and to
help young people more fully realize their potentials.
Drawing from original research and a review of existing studies, the
authors use the “4Es” conceptual framework to analyze four
key aspects of labor markets—employment creation, employability,
entrepreneurship, and equal opportunity—identifying main issues
and results, current trends, and possible new approaches.
