Description

What will become of today's young people? Will they be supportive of the world they live in? Or are they perhaps doomed to be criminal drop-outs? This book investigates to what extent different and contradictory trends of social modernization and economic progress determine the biographical development and social integration of young people in different countries and world regions. The book looks at the role young people themselves can play in the future, either as constructive social actors or as a problematic and partly excluded group, unable to face the challenges of a permanently changing world. It examines youth transition from education to work; patterns of vulnerability and the processes of social inclusion/exclusion; political participation, exclusion, and instrumentalization; youth cultures and new technologies; and regional research networks, governance, and supra-national youth policy.show more
