'The Economic and Social Council of the United Nations is to hold an event on the current and future status of youth employment, “Breaking new ground: Partnerships for more and better jobs for young people”.

Of the UN agencies participating in the youth conference, only one provides compensation to its interns (the ILO). Despite their best efforts, few interns actually gain employment with the UN, often taking on yet another internship in the hopes of eventually being paid.  For the lucky few who do manage, paid work usually comes in the form of precarious short-term contracts, most of which lack the various benefits provided to permanent staff.’
