In this paper the main elements of reflexion in the analysis of the processes of social and professional exclusion of the youth people are presented. The above mentioned elements are clear from a document elaborated by the GRET ordered by the “Group of Siena”, that was presented and discussed in the framework of the seminar “Social Monitoring and Social Exclusion: The case of Young People”, that was held last 8th and 9th of June 1995 in Oslo. In this document the phenomenon of exclusion is discussed from a reread of the work on the social and professional insertion of the young people developed by the GRET in the theoretical framework of the transition. The phenomenon of the social and professional exclusion of the young people is not limited to a small part of the transition, it is an “active principle” that requires an specific development. Among these specific elements of the exclusion, special emphasis is done in the relationship between the social conditionants of the exclusion (family and exclusion, labour failure versus familiar failure), formation systems, dynamics of the labour market, the same as the informational changes and their repercussions in terms of new social divisions. Finally, some methodological implications are given that are necessaries for the analysis of the dimensions of the considered exclusion and theirs statistical implications. © 1995 IOS Press.
