In the current economic and financial crisis, the lack of job opportunities has affected young people more than any other group in society. Consequently, young people are faced with social problems, they cannot successfully integrate into the labour market to ensure their future stability and build their life in the future. The paper deals with legal and institutional frameworks of youth unemployment and social integration as well as makes a discussion on the survey results regarding young people integration into the labour market. It is important to identify the key regulative framework of legislative and planning documents and to understand their importance with regard to youth unemployment regulation and a contribution to unemployment reduction.
