Student Lives in Crisis

This chapter discusses the role of the family, which is a source that is present, with a different weight, in all three countries. This chapter discusses the role of inter-generational transfers: the conditioning role of family sources and the implications of its use (e.g. sense of guilt and family expectations). It also shows how and in what ways the reliance on the family represents an ‘inequaliser’ of the experience of young people, offering or limiting the opportunities of young students. The chapter discusses the use of family resources for each profile, and analyses how the reliance on family resources extends the semi-dependence of young people while in university.
