Why local communities are essential to curbing youth unemployment
We need to take a local approach to tackling unemployment among young people, writes David Farrugia
I am a sociologist specialising in studies of youth, especially youth inequalities as they relate to social inequalities. I have conducted research on youth homelessness, rural and regional young people, and youth employment/unemployment. I am currently receiving funding from the Australian Research Council for a three-year study examining the formation of young workers in regional areas of high youth unemployment.
