ICT and Youth at Risk – how ICT-driven initiatives can contribute to their Socio-Economic Inclusion and how to measure it

Given the dearth of empirical evidence on this topic, the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies investigate from different angles how ICT is being used by young people who are marginalized or at risk of social exclusion, and how ICT can be used to reengage them as full participants in our societies. IPTS is currently (in 2010) carrying out two studies and developing some related policy support activities. The conclusions presented here are part of this new research line, which is being developed in collaboration and focuses on the role of ICT to support young people and the intermediaries who work with them.
