The Greek region of Epirus has the highest youth unemployment rate in Europe. Given Greece’s ongoing economic and debt crisis, their future appears bleak.
Greeks have long viewed the German finance minister as a symbol of failed austerity policies. But Athens is by no means joyful now that Wolfgang Schäuble is leaving after eight years in office, says Jannis Papadimitriou.
Unemployment in the eurozone remained unchanged in August underlining Europe's steady economic recovery. Youth unemployment nonetheless remains high in many countries.
Greek Prime Minister Tsipras has said his country is no longer in danger of Grexiting - leaving the EU - and is seeing an inward investment boom. He said he is hopeful after nine years of recession, but questions remain.
Times are getting tougher in Greece, but there is no real danger that an EU country will be left to flounder in election year 2017, writes Georg Matthes.
