Based on qualitative research carried out with young people aged from 18 to 30 in five European countries, Young Europeans, Work and Family examines young people's pathways to adulthood, and their perspectives on their future work and family lives.

This enlightening book investigates young people from a range of social classes and at various phases in their life: in training, in higher education, in insecure work and in steady jobs, including high- and low-status employment. The study was carried out by a cross-disciplinary team of researchers from Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Sweden and the UK, countries that represent a variety of economic profiles and welfare state regimes.

About the Series

Studies in European Sociology

Europe is currently undergoing massive change. In the former Eastern Europe, societies are adapting to post-communist regimes and economies and facing the implications of war in the Balkans. In the west the increased integration of the European Union impacts on every aspect of legal, economic and political life. The whole of Europe is going through major transformations in terms of gender, race and class. This series published by Routledge with the European Sociological Association, provides a forum for sociological responses to these developments.
