Between 3 and 5 October, the CES and the Institute for Popular Studies (ISP) organised a seminar on the subject of youth employment, in cooperation with the Youth of the EPP (YEPP), the Youth Organisation of the Romanian Democratic Liberal Party (OTPDL) and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS), Romania. On the first day, the event held a panel debate on the Romanian approach towards youth employment. Panellists included Andrea Paul, Vice President of PDL and Anca Boagiu, Vice President of EPP. The discussion was moderated by Konstantinos Kyranakis, President of YEPP and Sorin Moldovan, President of TDL Romania. The second day of the event started with small working groups discussing youth employment, with the results shared in a round table debate afterwards. Stefaan De Corte, CES Senior Research Officer, presented recent employment data in Europe and addressed issues including cross border labour mobility, unpaid traineeships and temporary employment. Further participants in the round table were Sven Irmer, Director of the KAS office in Romania; Marian-Jean Marinescu, MEP and Vice President EPP Group; and Siegfried Muresan, Political Adviser, EPP. Later, the participants met with Michel Barnier, EU Commissioner for Internal Market and Services, which was followed by a keynote speech by Petru Luhan, MEP, on the European perspective on youth employment.
