This chapter contributes a differentiated perspective towards integration and exclusion by presenting the findings of qualitative research into the risks of social exclusion faced by long-term-unemployed young people in six European countries. Applying the multidimensional concept of social exclusion developed by Kronauer to varying European socioeconomic and socio-cultural contexts, this social relationship is found to take very different forms. The dimension of social isolation (more frequent in Northern Europe) in fact counteracts the more economic or labour-market-related aspects of social exclusion. Also, the dimension of institutional exclusion is contradictory because the existence of state institutions not only provides support but also causes stigmatisation, while young people in Southern Europe do not expect anything from institutions.

Keywords:   social exclusion, social isolation, Europe, stigmatisation
