Young people and contradictions of inclusion: Towards Integrated Transition Policies in Europe

Andreu Lopez Blasco, Wallace McNeish, and Andreas Walther

Abstract

Using a biographical approach, this book integrates the perspectives of social policy, sociology, youth and transition research, and education and labour-market research. It compares policy and practice in a variety of European national contexts and explores the dilemmas of policies for the inclusion of young people, suggesting that a holistic Integrated Transition Policy, which puts young people's subjective experience at its centre, can provide an alternative to current policies and practice.

Keywords: biographical approach, social policy, youth research, education research, labour market, European policy, European practice, national contexts, youth inclusion, Integrated Transition Policy
