4. Social inclusion

This chapter gives an overview of youth policy in the field of social inclusion in Luxembourg.

Although there is no comprehensive strategy on young people's social inclusion, the aspects of inclusion and social cohesion are among the central objectives of Luxembourgish youth policy as defined by the 2008 youth law.

The Luxembourgish welfare state offers many financial provisions and services to people at risk of social exclusion. Most provisions and services are not especially designed for young people nor dedicated to this population. They are generally intended for the whole population at risk of social exclusion (e.g. measures related to welfare aid, guaranteed minimum income, costs of living allowance). Since the risk of social exclusion is higher among disadvantaged young people (e.g. at risk of poverty, low-educated or with migrant status), many offers are applicable to this group.
