Language and cultural barriers, and a disadvantaged socio-economic situation of families and communities often contribute to the risk of youth inactivity and social exclusion. Migration often implies an interruption of studies in the country of origin to resume them in a foreign country, often in a different language. This is a challenging transition and may negatively impact educational achievement and professional development, increasing the chances of inactivity. Additionally, young people with an immigration background are 70% more likely to become NEETs compared to other young people.
