Becoming an adult, from graduation to insertion in the labour market: pathways and representations
Ana Nunes de Almeida (ICS, ULisboa)
This research studies the young university students and their representations about adulthood, as an autonomy experience, regarding entry into the labour market. By conducting a mixed methodology, combining quantitative and qualitative strategies, I seek to portray and to provide an understanding of the pathways followed in the transition to adulthood by young university students in certain countries in southern Europe – Portugal, Spain and Italy This study aims to contribute to deepen the debate on youth and transition to adulthood.
