Abstract: Youth unemployment has been recognized as a serious problem in Sri Lanka since the 1960's"[l]. In the labour market, youth experience discrimination and inequalities due to different factors such as class and status, geography and sector, gender, ethnicity and physical or mental disabilities. According to a recent study from the Ministry of Tertiary Education and Training "about 73% who had passed out as graduates were unemployed"! 10], Thus unemployment is a pressing problem in the country even among the "educated". Annually, around 150,000 youths enter the labour market: Hence, unless there are realistic sustainable development programmes, unemployment is bound to increase, exacerbating the present socio-economic problems in the country.
