4. Social Inclusion
According to the National Plan to Combat Poverty and Social Exclusion 2021-2027 and the accompanying Action Plan for the period 2021-2024 young people are recognized as one of ten groups at the highest risk (children and young people are first group).
Modern problems, such as the high percentage of youth unemployment in the Republic of Croatia and the prolongation of parent-dependent time, lead to the increasing number of young people who are at risk of social exclusion according to the categories of education, housing, employment, poverty and health care.
In Croatia, the Ministry of Labour, Pension System, Family and Social Policy is a responsible state authority for combating social exclusion.
