Youth Unemployment and Public Policy: Address by Professor Christopher Pissarides (Resumed)

8 Nov 2012
Seanas Éireann

Senator Fidelma Healy Eames: I welcome Professor Pissarides and thank him for his encouraging words of direction to the Government. He is shining a spotlight on the important topic of youth unemployment. This esteemed House has endured since 1922 and is known to be a place of ideas and debate. We would also like it to be a House of solutions. In taking over the European Presidency in January 2013, we have a unique opportunity to lead on the issue of youth unemployment. As leaders and national parliamentarians we will have an opportunity to address youth unemployment across the European Union. That makes Professor Pissarides's visit all the more special.
