Financial and social exclusion is a reality for many young Europeans today. A lack of employment prevents many from contributing fully to their communities, damaging both individuals and society as a whole. We examine the health related causes and effects of this marginalisation, and what can and is being done to improve the situation.
This EuroHealthNet policy précis on the links between health and youth exclusion looks at the situation in Europe today, and at existing and proposed European legislation in this field. It describes several national practices designed to tackle youth exclusion, and gives some policy recommendations for the future.
