This report is the result of a two year collaboration between academics in eight countries. Among the group, some members were involved throughout the whole process, others were employed on short-term contracts to contribute towards specific tasks. All played important roles in the overall project. While the report draws together the main research findings, a number of other documents were produced along the way by members of national teams. Most significantly, the information on labour market contexts, policies and training programmes has been distilled from fairly extensive national reports which were produced in the first phase of the research process. For reference, these are included in an Appendix. The chapters which make up this report were drafted by small teams with all partners contributing to one or more chapters. Hence the overall ‘product’ should be regarded as a joint one in which many people contributed both to research, writing and discussion.
