Investigates differences and similarities in the school-to-work transition patterns in Italy and Spain and the institutional factors (education, labour market, and family) from which they originate. The study highlights that the main differences in young people’s transitions between the two countries are accounted for by the extraordinary expansion of tertiary education and the massive use of temporary contracts in Spain. These two factors contribute to explaining country differences in the relationship between young people’s educational attainment and initial labour market outcomes. Despite these differences two important similarities between Italy and Spain emerge from the analyses: the vulnerability of young people’s position in their early occupational career and their strong dependence on the family of origin.

Keywords:   atypical contracts, dual labour market, educational systems, family, labour market deregulation, school-to-work transitions, southern European countries, tertiary education expansion, unemployment
