Study that analyzed the consequences of the economic crisis caused by Covid-19 on youth employment, and its impact on social and gender inequalities in the youth population.


The research focused on the youth sectors most previously affected by job insecurity and on the impact that the increasing digitization of the economy may have on social inequalities.

Access to paid and stable work has traditionally been the standard form of emancipation for young people since work allowed economic autonomy, the establishment of new families and moral autonomy. But from the economic crisis of the 1990s, a progressive flexibilization of the labour market took place, which led to a worsening of the working conditions for young people based on temporality, job insecurity and social lack of protection.

A situation that the serious emergency of Covid-19 could worsen, especially in the sectors that have reached higher precarious quotas and in a context of increasing digitization of the economy.
