Abstract [en]

Young people without an upper secondary education face considerably increased risks of unemploy­ment and social exclusion. In this article, Norwegian and Swedish policies aiming to support young people´s school-to-work transitions and mini­mize school dropout are analysed and compared, applying a categorisation of social inclusion from Arnesen & Lundahl (2006). It is concluded that the similarities between Norway and Sweden with regard to four factors - access to education and the labour market, division and integration, the distribution of resources and the placing of responsibilities - tend to dominate the picture. There are, however, also a number of note­worthy differences. In parti­cular, young Swedes run larger risks of unem­ployment than Nor­we­gian youth. Norway has been more proactive and has taken more comprehensive approaches than Sweden to facilitate transi­tions within upper se­cond­ary edu­cation and between school and work.
