In this chapter questions of mobility and movement as a way of understanding how the changes identified throughout the book are discussed. It focuses the notion of youth mobility. Mobility is explored in three ways. First, it looks at mobility within nation states, and the question of social mobility showing how throughout the crisis old inequalities persist. Secondly, it examines mobility out of the family home, especially since 2007 showing how this is being delayed further in a number of our case study countries. Finally, mobility as migration is examined. Since the crisis, rates of migration have been increasing, with the young moving abroad in search of work or education. Evidence is starting to suggest that ‘being internationally mobile’ for the young is a new core requirement in neoliberal times.
