7 IOM Somalia - Research on Youth, Employment and Migration Foreword by IOM Somalia Chief of Mission Youth migration is not an issue for Puntland and Somaliland alone; it affects the rest of the regions, the continent, Europe and beyond. The migration landscape is rapidly changing: the ebbs and flows of population movements of the Mediterranean and Yemen crises illustrate the complex trends of irregular and forced migration in and out of Somalia. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has been working in Somalia, Somaliland and Puntland to reduce the negative impact of return and irregular migration, and to increase the benefits of orderly migration. Understanding the root causes – including unemployment at home – is a first step to unlocking solutions. The key solution is known: to increase youth employment in Puntland and Somaliland. This is a key priority under the New Deal’s peace-building and state-building goals, and one to which IOM is actively contributing. IOM supports youth employment in Somalia, through the implementation of cash-for-work activities, internships, vocational skills training for young women and men. Beyond traditional solutions, the situation requires: Creative solutions to bridge the mismatch between employers and youth. This research shows that youth do not want to leave but they are left without any choice, as they are unable to find jobs. The problem can be fixed: it is related to a mismatch between supply and demand, between youth and employers’ expectations. Coordination of activities: Youth in Puntland and Somaliland are, for many, well educated, and hold high ambitions. Their hopes are re-directed abroad when they cannot fulfil them at home. Organizations can coordinate activities to bridge the compatibility gap between youth entrants in the labour market and employers: to provide the youth with an economic and social space at home.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
