Abstract This thesis examines the social and the political participation of long-term unemployed youth in Geneva. The research analyses participation in social networks, both associational and interpersonal, as well as the political participation and the personal well-being of unemployed youth in order to assess the impact of long-term unemployment on citizenship. Results show that although unemployed youth suffer from a reduced personal well-being, they remain socially and politically active. The three dimensions are interrelated. Associational membership fosters unemployed youth political participation, while their reduced personal well-being hinders their political participation. Lastly, interpersonal networks reduce the negative effects of unemployment on personal well-being.
