Description: This report responds to an extensive debate among academics, practitioners and commentators - even the Archbishop of Canterbury - on `the problems of modern youth`. Analysing evidence from across the world, it concludes that both the frequent condemnation of teenagers and recent attempts to absolve them from blame are misplaced. It says that changes in the family, local communities and the economy have combined to cause deep inequalities in the transition to modern adult life and leave increasing numbers of young people incapable to growing up safely and successfully.
