How to Promote the Role of Youth in Rural Areas of Europe

Lookup NU author(s): Emeritus Professor Mark Shucksmith OBE


Full text is not currently available for this publication.


This report provides an overview of the situation of young people in rural areas of the EU. Young people’s social inclusion is multi-dimensional, and often characterised by individualisation. The report offers an assessment of the effect of rural development policies on young people’s integration into rural social and economic life. In short, most rural policy ignores young people, and most youth policies neglect the rural dimension. Finally, the report suggests some possible ways to improve youth integration in EU rural areas in the context of policy reforms post-2013.
