Nature, Causes and Consequences of Youth Unemployment in Balochistan: An Empirical Analysis

Our project explores and analyzes the nature, causes and consequences of unemployment in Balochistan. Youth unemployment is a key concern for Pakistan—given its budding young population, lack of coherent public policy measures, and neglect of successive provincial and federal governments in tackling the issues faced by young people, especially in Balochistan. Our research attempts to understand the dynamics behind the unemployment of educated youth in Balochistan.   Moreover, we seek to understand job market clearing in Balochistan, analyzing the roles of stakeholders on both demand and supply side. Furthermore, we attempt to understand the reasons behind brain drain of talent from Balochistan. Additionally, we will be critically analyzing the existing youth policies and strategies in Balochistan.  


We believe that our research will help stakeholders and policy makers with better understand the dynamics of unemployment in Balochistan—helping them develop informed policy and better strategies to tackle the issue of unemployment among youth in Balochistan.
