The aim of the chapter is to analyse the interplay among welfare state institutional settings, young adults’ characteristics (socio-economic and demographic aspects as well as household structures) and the exposure to poverty, focusing on specific aspects of social policies and, in particular, social transfers. The methodology used for this chapter is based both on an analysis of the regulatory system for the main forms of social transfers and on quantitative analysis that uses the EU-Silc database. The chapter is structured in two parts: the first part illustrates the characteristics of the regulation of the tools used to tackle youth poverty in eight welfare states that we have selected for this volume; France, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Spain and the UK. The second part illustrates the interplay between household and individual characteristics of young adults, welfare state coverage and exposure to poverty.

Abstract

The aim of the chapter is to analyse the interplay among welfare state institutional settings, young adults’ characteristics (socio-economic and demographic aspects as well as household structures) and the exposure to poverty, focusing on specific aspects of social policies and, in particular, social transfers. The methodology used for this chapter is based both on an analysis of the regulatory system for the main forms of social transfers and on quantitative analysis that uses the EU-Silc database. The chapter is structured in two parts: the first part illustrates the characteristics of the regulation of the tools used to tackle youth poverty in eight welfare states that we have selected for this volume; France, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Spain and the UK. The second part illustrates the interplay between household and individual characteristics of young adults, welfare state coverage and exposure to poverty.
