Abstract

Social inclusion is a multidimensional phenomenon that involves social, psychological, political, and economic aspects of individuals’ life. While social inclusion is a priority of the European Agenda 2020, little is known about individuals’ preferences for social inclusion and their determinants. We investigate factors affecting preferences for social inclusion using a stated preference survey on juvenile rehabilitation. We show that ideological inclinations, concerns about crime, and altruistic motives play a significant role in explaining preferences for the social inclusion of juvenile offenders.
