Multi-level Factors of Youth Exclusion and Inclusion in Brazil


This report contains a discussion of the main findings emerging from a study of the role of young people in the “Tropical Spring” mobilizations in Brazil. After a brief discussion of the general socio-economic and political context and issues affecting young people’s labour market exclusion, we offer a comprehensive analysis of the main domestic factors – both policy (factors related to labour market and social inclusion) and organizational (factors to pertaining social and political engagement) – that affected youth grievances and activism and provided the backdrop of the 2013 mobilizations. In the final parts, the particular characteristics and events of the June-July 2013 protests are elaborated. The report concludes by delving into the transformative impact of the student mobilizations and their effects on the national context.
