Series: Governance, Security and Development
The EUMARGINS project, led by Katrine Fangen has just had its first book published by Ashgate. 'Inclusion and Exclusion of Young Adult Migrants in Europe - Barriers and Bridges' explores the inclusion and exclusion of young adult immigrants across a range national contexts, including the Nordic welfare states, old colonial countries, Southern European nations and the Eastern European region. Scrutinising legal, policy and historical sources, as well as participation in labour market and education systems, this volume engages with multiple social arenas and spheres, to integrate research and provide a cohesive investigation of the dynamics of each national setting.
This book provides a comprehensive and insightful portrait of the 'Nordic model of welfare' - its history, characteristics and challenges in a globalized world. It illustrates the successful interplay of political, social and economic forces in the development of political and welfare institutions in the small and advanced open economies and egalitarian societies of Northern Europe.
In recent years, scholars in international relations and other fields have begun to conceive of security more broadly, moving away from a state-centered concept of national security toward the idea of human security, which emphasizes the individual and human well-being. Viewing global environmental change through the lens of human security connects such problems as melting ice caps and carbon emissions to poverty, vulnerability, equity, and conflict. This book examines the complex social, health, and economic consequences of environmental change across the globe.
