In this chapter the attention is turned Norway, Japan, Spain and Poland to provide a contrast to the other four case study areas that were central to the analysis in the previous chapters. The discussion outlines the ways that each of these countries have been encountering and engaging with neoliberalisation, and how neoliberal philosophy and practice has impacted on youth policies. Over the past ten years all four countries have drawn upon neoliberal philosophy and principles in one way or another to shape youth policies. In the final part of this chapter we explore the experience of citizenship for young people in these four countries prior to the crisis.
