This chapter provides a theoretical framework for understanding the structural and biographical changes that have led to a destandardisation of young people's transitions. Illustrated by the metaphor of the ‘yo-yo’, the central concepts in the chapter are young adults' transitions and misleading trajectories. By comparative analysis, non-intended effects of integration policies for young adults are related to institutional structures and procedures that continue to be inspired by the assumptions of gendered standard biographies and the possibility of full employment. The chapter also introduces the perspective of Integrated Transition Policies (ITPs) that start from the basis of individual biographies and are coordinated in a cross-sector manner.

Keywords:   Europe, intergenerational relationships, young adults' transitions, integration policies, ITPs
