4. Social Inclusion

Last update: 16 February 2024

According to the National Plan to Combat Poverty and Social Exclusion 2021-2027 and its Action Plan 2021-2024, young people are among the top ten high-risk groups (specifically, children and young people are listed as the first group). 

Modern challenges, like the high youth unemployment rate in the Republic of Croatia and the prolonged dependency on parents, contribute to an increasing number of young people at risk of social exclusion. The risk is assessed across areas such as 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.
