The Mediterranean area today, between unemployment, emigration and new opportunities for economic development

For more than a decade, the Report on the Mediterranean economies offers an updated economic-political analysis of the state of the region. Some of the key themes of the 2017 edition: changes in the labor market, also in light of the ongoing economic crisis and the profound demographic changes of the last decades; the high rate of youth unemployment - especially women's - not only in the low-educated population groups, but also among graduates; the phenomenon of brain drain, which generates emigration in southern European countries, in turn characterized by a strong influx of incoming migration.
