Written by I. Tolgensbakk, J. Solstad Vedeler and B. Hvinden of the Oslo and Akershus University, the latest issue of the NEGOTIATE working papers aims to understand the subjective effects of youth unemployment in Europe by conducting life story interviews with 211 individuals coming from seven different European countries (Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Norway, Poland and the UK) born either between 1950 and 1955, 1970-1975 or 1990-1995.
