Transitions to adulthood in the 21st century
Today's young people face the transition to adulthood in an uncertain and changing social context. Education no longer seems to guarantee access to a stable and well-paid job. Precariousness is an increasingly common experience among them, and emancipation is delayed. Although many wish to marry and have children, family transitions are delayed, waiting for economic and personal stability that never comes. Finally, more and more young people are turning 30 without seeing their personal and professional aspirations fulfilled.
In this project we seek to identify, from sociology, demography and psychology, the capacities and skills that facilitate the development of a mature identity, capable of successfully facing the challenges of adult life. In doing so, we seek to generate proposals that can guide both education and youth policies.
