LOURDES FARIAS, María. Reflections on the impacto of youth employment programs in Argentina: a case study. Ultima décad. [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.35, pp.169-194. ISSN 0718-2236. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22362011000200008.
The work presented here is part of an investigation that had two main objectives, firstly to analyze the formation of youth employment policies deployed by the state and secondly, from a more subjective view, to analyze the major social and economic impacts in young recipients of these policies. In order to carry out this study, the subject was approached from different secondary targets which allowed me to characterize the main criteria taken into account when designing policies and monitoring the adequacy of those policies to the problems experienced by young people and identify what were the changes in the lives of young people from their inclusion in the projects. The field work was realized in Villa Itatí, Quilmes, Buenos Aires. The policies analyzed were «Hands on», and the program «Included». To carry out this research a qualitative methodology and participatory was used, as it allowed access to understanding the phenomenon of the investigation.
