This article analyzes how unemployed youth grapple with the experience of unemployment and how it influences the construction of their identity. In a work society, since employment stands for the youth’s identity centre, the experience of unemployment represents a risky situation for an individual. The author deals with the question of how social pedagogy can offer the possibility to form a ‘non-professionally-oriented life course’, where the young can try out new forms of social integration.

Keywords: Identity and Unemployment, Social Capital, Social Networks, Society of Work
