Abstract: This paper discusses the current experiences of young people both in the educational systems and in the labor market, tracking the objective and subjective relations between both social fields. Based on different statistical sources, major trends in Europe and in Latin America are compared, in order to sketch some global tendencies but also regional paths. The main argument is that, even if uncertainty, non-linearity and individualization are increasing worldwide, actually the European youth and the Latin American one face diverging risks and opportunities, due to unequal economic structures and cultural frames, as well as recent political orientations.
Neste artigo discutimos as actuais experiências dos jovens tanto no sistema de ensino como no mercado de trabalho, procurando captar as relações objectivas e subjectivas entre esses dois campos sociais. Com base em diversas fontes estatísticas, comparamos as principais tendências na Europa e na América Latina, com vista a traçar algumas tendências globais, mas também diferenças regionais. O nosso principal argumento é que, se bem que a incerteza, o carácter não linear e a individualização das carreiras se acentuam em todo o mundo, actualmente a juventude enfrenta riscos e oportunidades diferentes na Europa e na América Latina, devido a diferenças substanciais nas estruturas económicas e quadros culturais, bem como a orientações políticas recentes.
