School dropout rates and youth unemployment top social and political agendas throughout Europe. Observers fear that educational failure and chronic joblessness will give rise to a lost generation of young people with seriously diminished prospects.

Drawing on a large study funded by the Brussels-based P&V Foundation, Early School Leaving and Youth Unemployment tackles these vexing phenomena. Contributors from a range of disciplines—including sociology, economics, education, and labor market studies—explore the causes and effects of high dropout rates and youth unemployment. Ultimately, they suggest evidence-based strategies for combating two problems that plague societies across Europe and beyond.
