4. Social Inclusion

According to the The Strategy for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion in the Republic of Croatia (2014-2020) young people are recognized as one for four groups at the highest risk, together with the the elderly and pensioners, the unemployed and people with disabilities.

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.
