Transition Regimes Print
Comparative analysis of youth transitions starts from how trajectories are structured in different ways.

Referring to the analysis of welfare regimes the term ‘regime’ implies that life course regulations emerge from complex constellations between socio-economic structure, institutions (to which public policies belong) and cultural patterns. These constellations represent power structures which also influence individual processes of biographical orientation.

Comparisons of transition regimes refer to structures of welfare, education and training, youth policy, doing gender, and labour markets but also to interpretations of disadvantage and the dominant meanings of youth. Rather than being descriptive the concept is heuristic. It aims at distinguishing the dominant rationales of regulating youth transitions. (AW)
