24th Annual workshop Transitions in Youth (TIY)


After school-leaving, young people are finally ready to enter their adulthood, which usually starts with applying skills and knowledge acquired during formal education to pursue occupational careers that meets their preferences and expectations.

However, with the end of the industrial society, the transition from school to employment does not represent the exclusive significant entry port into adulthood. Other kind of steps has become increasingly relevant and the phases of becoming adult are increasingly nuanced and blended. Marriage and partnership, childbirth and family formation, re-entries into education after some kind of interruption, and even more so “bad starts” like entering in secondary labour markets or getting stuck in a NEET position are increasingly under the light of social scientists for the consequences they can play in life course developments. 

For the 24th annual TIY workshop, the Network Committee invites authors to submit contributions concerning the area of youth transitions, especially – but not exclusively – the transition from education to the labour market and its relationships with other life course outcomes. 

The 24th annual workshop of the European Research Network on Transitions in Youth (TIY) will take place in Trento, Italy on 7-10 September 2016. The workshop will be hosted by the Department of Sociology and Social Research jointly with the Center for Social Inequality Studies (CSIS), University of Trento.
