Istanbul Labor Market Research: Changes Caused by the Pandemic

The social, economic and political consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have profoundly altered the society both the macro- and micro-economic levels:

Inequalities have deepened and the economic downturn has been experienced especially harshly by disadvantaged groups who were already economically vulnerable even before the pandemic.

Based on the unexpected and profound economic changes brought on by the pandemic, Save the Children Turkey and INGEV decided to update the 2019 Gender-Sensitive Labor Market Assessment for Istanbul.

Access to the labor market and job opportunities in Istanbul by economically vulnerable youth from among the Syrian and Host communities have been re-examined in light of the changes created by the pandemic. This updated study was conducted from February to April 2021.
