A new book has been published by EXCEPT researchers: “Becoming adult in hard times: current and future issues on job insecurity and autonomy”
A new book "Becoming adult in hard times: current and future issues on job insecurity and autonomy" by EXCEPT scholars from the University of Turin (Italy) and Umea University (Sweden) is now out. In the book, the authors look beyond unemployment rates to focus on the direct effects of the recent economic recession on young people’s daily lives.
The book examines in detail the consequences of early job insecurity and labour market exclusion (i.e. unemployment or economic inactivity) for European youth’s autonomy in terms of leaving parental home and forming their own family.. Through a fruitful scientific dialogue between sociology and psychology, the authors critically discuss available literature on the transition from youth to adult life.
