Being young and exposed to violent crime can increase the risk of labour market exclusion later in life, at least if you are a woman. For young men, there is not the same risk – unless they themselves have also committed a violent crime, then the risk of exclusion from the labour market increases for them as well. This is shown in a new dissertation in sociology from the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) at Stockholm University.
Researchers at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) organise The Stockholm Health Day, a workshop on the topic of children and health. The workshop aims to bring together researchers to lay the foundation for a network within health economics.
