Youth face difficulties when entering the labour market. Of particular concern are those who are not employed and are not in education and training (NEET), as they are characterized by low motivation/self-confidence as well as insufficient interest in social events and inadequate skills to find gainful employment. In the Republic of Serbia, NEET rate has decreased in the last five years, but is still roughly 20%, high compared to their EU counterparts (Eurostat, 2019). Due to research into Serbian NEET youth being relatively rare, this paper seeks to establish characteristics of Serbian NEET youth and how they successfully return to education or gain employment. The aim of this paper is to compare NEET unemployed, inactive in the labour market and not in education with youth who are employed to identify what social differences may increase the likelihood of being NEET and the risks associated with transitioning into the labour market.
