This chapter discusses the relationship between welfare regimes and political participation among unemployed youth to determine whether a more generous financial support constitutes a resource of participation, or whether dependency is associated with political passitivity and alienation. In this chapter, the Marshallian analyses of citizen's rights are used as a basis. His analyses form the basis for the analysis of full civil, political and social citizenship. The analysis presented in this chapter is conducted on the basis of a six nation comparative study of unemployed youth and compares, across two welfare regimes, the Scandinavian and the more residual British systems.

Keywords:   welfare regimes, political participation, unemployed youth, financial support, resource of participation, political passitivity, alienation, civil citizenship, political citizenship, social citizenship
