Chapter 9: Integrating young people into society: perceptions of enabling agents

Robert Raeside, Valerie Egdell and Helen Graham

Abstract

This chapter takes a Capability Approach to explore the values of agents responsible for the development and/or implementation of employment activation policies for young people across five European countries. Using results from Q methods interviews, this chapter considers agents’ views on the barriers to young people’s integration into, and participation in, society. By using this approach, the hidden preferences of, and variations between, agents are revealed.
