Welfare regimes and political activity among unemployed young people

Welfare regimes and political activity among unemployed young people

(p.193) Eleven Welfare regimes and political activity among unemployed young people
Youth unemployment and social exclusion in Europe

Jan Carle

Policy Press

This chapter explores the political attitudes and political participation among unemployed youth, and how welfare regimes may influence political activity and attitudes. It also investigates the differences between the countries and the differences among the young (concentrating on differences concerning gender, occupation and experience of unemployment). The results show that the young unemployed people in Scotland and Germany clearly do not have sympathies with the right, while at least in Denmark, Norway, Finland and Italy about one third of the young unemployed have such sympathies. The general participation rate in all political actions was also very low in Finland and Germany, but was higher in Scotland for some actions. It is also noted that the experience of unemployment correlates with reluctance to participate.

Keywords:   youth unemployment, welfare regimes, political activity, political attitudes, Scotland, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Italy
