Multi-level Factors of Youth Exclusion and Inclusion in Ireland

This report contains a discussion of the main findings emerging from a study of the role of young people in the student mobilizations in Ireland in 2010 and 2011. After a brief discussion of how the recent economic crisis sharpened young people’s social and labor market exclusion resulting in high levels of emigration, 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 activism and provided the backdrop of the student mobilizations. In the final parts, the particular characteristics and events of the 2010/2011 student protests are elaborated. The report concludes by delving into the transformative impact of the student mobilizations and their effects on the national context.
