Abstract

Though they tend to get less attention than other disadvantaged groups, huge numbers of young people today in Britain are marginalized, experiencing isolation, social hardship, gender and ethnic discrimination, and overall social stigma—a situation that has been exacerbated by the combination of austerity measures and a weak job market that has all too often cut young people off from support and employment.
This book sets that marginalization in the broader context of austerity, poverty, and inequality to show both recent changes and long-term continuity in the position of young people, with a special emphasis on the voice of youth and the forms of resistance they adopt.
