Event details

Sociology seminar

The talk will revolve around the changing context of youth transitions in the crisis, and will be informed by the evidences from comparative researches and from an in-depth analysis of youth transitions conducted in England, Italy and Sweden. The discussion will show that inequality is increasing among young people as a result of the over-reliance and unavailability of family and labour market sources during austerity.
